AP DHCP - Bindings

The DHCP Binding displays DHCP binding information such as expiry time, client IP addresses and their MAC address.

Access points build and maintain a DHCP snooping table (DHCP binding database). An access point uses the snooping table to identify and filter untrusted messages. The DHCP binding database keeps track of DHCP addresses assigned to ports, as well as filtering DHCP messages from untrusted ports. Incoming packets received on untrusted ports, are dropped if the source MAC address does not match the MAC in the binding table.

To view a network's DHCP Bindings:

  1. Select the Statistics menu from the Web UI.
  2. Expand the System node from the navigation pane (on the left-hand side of the screen). The System node expands to display the RF Domains created within the managed network.
