Get DHCP clients list connected to DHCP allocator on WEC7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I Configured WEC7 Device as DHCP Allocator and is working fine. 

    I am able to see the connected DHCP clients information in Registry under ConnectionSharing/Addresses.

    But for my application development I don't want to read the registry all the time to get updates of connected clients.

    Are there any other options (API) available to read connected clients info (IP, MAC, Client Name etc).

    And if i can register to some services for client connection status change notifications would be better.

    Do you suggest any better ways to get clients info other than reading registry?

    Thanks in Advance.

  • Thanks Bruce,

    Yes I can use your recommendation for getting clients list.

    Do you recommend any third party DHCP server apps for WEC7 as I am getting some problems with DHCP allocator.

    as mentioned here:

    1. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/a1b7eaae-48c6-4704-ae3a-d48db5cdb7b6/wec7-dhcp-allocator-not-sending-ack-for-a-dhcp-client?forum=winembplatdev.

    2. also DHCP allocator will stops once it finds a real DHCP Server on the network as per MS documents.
