Why Addresses in the IP Address Pool on a Switch Are Exhausted When the Switch Functions as a DHCP Server and It Has a Few Clients?

If the IP address pool has much more resources than needs of clients, the following two reasons may cause address exhaustion:
1. An attacker keeps changing the CHADDR field and sending DHCP Discover packets to exhaust addresses. If so, contact Huawei engineers to deploy DHCP snooping to protect the IP address pool.
2. The DHCP server ping function is enabled on the DHCP server. This function tries to ping the allocated addresses before responding to DHCP Offer packets. If a client responds to any ping packet, the DHCP server considers that there are address conflicts and addresses are exhausted. To solve this problem, two methods are available:
1. Capture packets on the ports connected to the DHCP server. If a client responds to ping packets, prohibit the client.
2. Disable the DHCP server ping function using the undo dhcp server ping packet command.
3. Such as S5700, S6700

How to configure the two wifi router

Are you trying to cascade two wireless routers? If yes, here's how:

1. First make sure that the first router (will serve as the server router) should be working. And then get the IP address of the server router.

2. Connect a CAT5 cable from the WAN port of the server router and the other end of the CAT5 cable should be connected to any of the LAN ports of the client router (which is the second router).

3. Then connect a computer directly to the client router and access its WEB UI.

4. Disable the DHCP server capability of the client router and set a static IP on the client router and make sure that it has the same IP range as the server router so that they would communicate.

5. After making sure that the two routers are on the same IP range, connect a computer to the server router and then ping the IP of the client router. Once you can ping it, then it should work.

If you're having a trouble with the setup or should you wish to have more information about the router, then refer to the router's user manual for necessary information.

Good luck and have a great day!

I have two different domains that are connected via VPN connection through two routers. I can ping from domain to domain via IP address on clients and servers. However I can only do a net view command on...

So you verified ICMP traffic isn't blocked and it appears the servers allow the netBios traffic to pass.

On the client machine, check to make sure the windows print and file sharing is installed and the machine isn't blocking netBios traffic.

Make sure TCP ports 137,139, and 445 are open on the xp machine and any devices in between.

It's acting like the TCP data is being blocked by the client machine.

I have two different domains that are connected via VPN connection through two routers. I can ping from domain to domain via IP address on clients and servers. However I can only do a net view command on...

This is an excerpt from a MS Technet page for error 53:
Resolutions: 1) if it is domain environment, check your WINS; 2) if it is peer-to-peer workgroup, enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP; 3) make sure the machine is running; 4) make sure file and Printer Share enabled on remote computer; 5) make sure client for ms networks is enabled on local computer; 6) make sure you type the correct name. 7) Make sure no firewall running or any security setting.
Pay close attention to #s 4 and 5 - I suspect XP pro might not be open enough.

CIsco ASA 5510 fire wall problem

Hi Thangaraj_j,

Can you provide the topology of your setup? Can you provide also the following:

- running configuration of the ASA
- ip address of the server (what kind of server is this? what tcp/udp port does it use)
- show xlate
- show con
- show log

Just a quick try, have you tried clearing the translation and the arp table?

commands to do it:

clear xlate
clear arp
clear local

Let me know and if it still doesn't work, try to ping the server from the pc clients and see if ping does work. (you need to allow icmp to pass thru in case you are denying it for testing purposes) Just send me the additional information given above.

Can't send e-mail

Check your network connection. Can you visit web pages? If not, check your network cable, modem, etc.

If your connection is good, try pinging your outgoing mail server.

If the ping fails, phone whoever maintains the server, and ask them when it will be back online.

If the ping is successful, try closing, then opening your mail client. Doublecheck the settings for outgoing server, port, encryption options, username and password.

I am assuming that you are referring to the tower (desktop) as the server while the laptop is the client. While the client can access the server's CD drive, you can not ping the server. A couple of ideas:
1. verify that both server and client belong to the same Workgroup;
2. verify that both server and client have the same Subnet Mask and that their satic IP adds are near each other;
3. Server's firewall settings/configurations does not allow/prevents ping response; and/or
4. the server might be using Zonelab, McAfee Firewall, Microsoft ICF SP2 or some other form of port blocking.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Emulex NetQue Pro2 Print Server how do I connect to it

Your DHCP server will keep track of which MAC Addresses have been given what IP addresses. From there, find the IP address of your Print Server. Ping the IP address to confirm IP connectivity between your computer and the print server. You should then be able to upgrade the firmware.
