    Just to confirm.

    A client with no origional lease sends the Request packet to the server but recieves a NACK from the server. Does the server then send a different Offer or does the client receive the NACK and then start the whole lease process over with Discover(think its this one)?

    Cheers,

    No the server wouldn't be able to respond with a different offer if the client had no original lease yet had received a NACK. That would usually indicate that the server has no available addresses to lease out - meaning the client would fail over to APIPA for five minutes and then try again.

    Ok it just clicked in my head i got mixed up between renewing a lease and receiving a NACK as opposed to a machine with no origional ip address to begin with and receiving a NACK.
