How to configure IPv4 DHCP Server in Seqrite UTM

28-05-2021 18:03:01


DHCP server allows us to automatically assign IP addresses, default gateways, and other network parameters to client devices. Seqrite UTM acts as a DHCP server to allocate IP addresses to host saving the configuration time of the IT administrator.

Applicable Version:  2.0 and above

1)Navigate to Network > DHCP > Server.

2) Toggle the DHCP server status button to enable DHCP

3) Click the + (Add) icon to add new DHCP server

4) Type the name of your choice under “server name”.

5) Toggle the “status” button

6) Select the type of IP addressing scheme whether IPv4 or IPv6 (in our case it is IPv4).

7) Select the lease time, whether limited or unlimited as required. If you select limited, enter the Minimum and Maximum lease period intervals (in minutes). The minimum Lease time is the lease time after which the client will request to renew the lease. The maximum Lease time is the lease time after which the DHCP server will free the IP address if no response is returned from the client.

8) Select the Interface from the available interfaces list and enter the corresponding subnet mask.

9) Enter the range of the IP addresses in the Start IP and End IP fields.

10) Enter the Gateway IP address.

11) Enter the DNS server IP address and alternate DNS server if applicable.

12) Click “Save” at the bottom of the page after completing the configurations.

 Configure static lease :

Adding a static lease allows you to bind the IP address with the MAC address of the end computer so that only the configured IP address will be leased to the client irrespective of the other free IP addresses.

1) Click Add icon (+) in the Static Lease section.

2) Enter MAC address of the user’s computer to which the IP address is to be bound.

3) Enter host name.

4) Set the IPv4 address to bind. This IP address will be assigned to the user’s computer.

5) Click save.

6) Click save again.
