The DHCP service included with Windows 2000 server and Windows Server 2003 include support for BOOTP. A scope can be configured to allocate address' to either DHCP clients, BOOTP clients, or both.
Unlike other implementations of BOOTP, a reservation (BOOTPTAB file entry) is not required. The DHCP service will allocate an IP address in the same manner as a DHCP client.
The 833 access servers have BOOTP enabled by default. A BOOTP allocated address will over-ride any configured IP address. This option can be disabled in the IP configuration.
The Jetstream 6000 always transmits a BOOTP request at bootup. This option cannot be disabled. The BOOTP offered address will over-ride any configured IP address.
The Iolan+ server will transmit a BOOTP request only if there is no configured IP address.
The Ioprint+ has DHCP/BOOTP enabled by default. This option can be disabled in the TCP/IP configuration.
Note: if you want to allocate the same address to a client then create a reservation in the scope.
