AP DHCP - Networks

A controller, service platform or access point's DHCP server maintains a pool of IP addresses and client configuration parameters (default gateway, domain name, name servers, etc). On receiving a valid client request, the DHCP server assigns an IP address, a lease (the validity of time), and other IP configuration parameters to a client on an administrator assigned lease basis.

The Networks screen provides network pool information, such as the subnet for the addresses you want to lease from the pool, the pool name, used addresses and the total number of addresses available for lease to a requesting client.

To view the DHCP Server's Networks information:

  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.
  3. Expand an RF Domain node, and select one of it's connected access points. The access point's statistics menu displays in the right-hand side of the screen, with the Health tab selected by default.
  4. Expand the DHCP Server menu.
  5. Select Networks.
    The Statistics > AP > DHCP Server > Networks screen displays in the right-hand pane.
