When a Windows NT version 3.5 or 3.51 Remote Access Service (RAS) server uses dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) servers to assign remote TCP/IP client addresses, the range of IP addresses that the RAS server receives is cached in the registry. If you reconfigure the DHCP server to allocate and provide IP addresses from a different address pool, the RAS server still assigns IP addresses from the original RAS client address pool.
The RAS Server does not query the DHCP server for new IP addresses until the original address leases (cached in the Registry) expire.
To force the RAS server to use the new IP addresses provided by the DHCP server:
- Run Registry Editor (REGEDT32.EXE).
- From the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE subtree, go to the following key:
- Remove the DhcpAddresses subkey.
- Close Registry Editor.
- Shutdown and restart Windows NT.
