Preferred DHCP-Server possible

Hi snom Helpdesk Team,

 

is there a way, flag, xml config option for preferred DHCP-Requests?

 

--> Can we create a own DHCP-Server, that will be preferred from the Phone, over something like:

if IP from DHCP with MAC xx:xx:... take that

or, set one time the DHCP IP-Address in the Phone to accept only IPs from there?

 

So that we have a DHCP-Range for IT (managed by other), any we can define a DHCP-Range for the Phones, what managed from us.

(this i know from other Vendors what build the PBX and Phones, there the Phone Searching for DHCP-Server from Vendor, if not exist, after x sec, it takes IP from a other DHCP)

 

(In most Networks, we don't have access to the DHCP-Server, or if with many troubles for DHCP-Leases and collisions, misconfiguration ...) :-(

 

 Thanks for Info - Meik

Dear Meik,

unfortunately it's not possible since DHCP use broadcast to communicate its presence.

If you need to work in a network where you can't configure DHCP option 66 you can use other methods like:

- PnP server

- SRAPS: https://service.snom.com/display/wiki/SRAPS

Here you can find documentation about our provisioning methods:
