I have a problem where the DHCP server is enabled in KWF but I get an error saying that the scope does not exist as in the log capture below. KWF is seeing the request on the WAN port as opposed to the LAN port where the scope is defined. The scope is defined as 192.168.1.20 through 192.168.1.254 with subnet of 255.255.255.0 and uses the KWF LAN IP for gateway and DNS.

The X.X.X.X below in the log capture represents my WAN IP to the internet. Why is KWF seeing the request as coming in on the WAN when the client PC making the DHCP request is on the LAN adaptor which is 192.168.1.1? Any ideas? Debug log below:

[05/Oct/2004 16:54:27] {dhcp} DHCP server: scope for request (received on interface X.X.X.X) doesn't exist (or not enabled)
[05/Oct/2004 16:54:33] DHCP server: scope for request (received on interface X.X.X.X) doesn't exist (or not enabled)
[05/Oct/2004 16:54:39] {dhcp} DHCP server: scope for request (received on interface X.X.X.X) doesn't exist (or not enabled)

Suggestion: Do you have an DHCP ip address for the internet connection? If so its possible that NIC did not get an ip address and windows assigned it one from the same range as you're DHCP server uses.

At the time that I am having the problem that I describe, the WAN NIC does have a valid DHCP assigned IP address from the internet.

Client computers on the LAN are able to access the internet and all other functionality is working correctly.

Thanks for the idea though...

I noticed that after upgrading to version 6.0.6 the DHCP server did not start. After rebooting the firewall pc the DHCP server started correctly.

Check the debug log for a line like this one:

[15/Oct/2004 16:22:55] Service "DHCP" started, bound to address 192.168.1.1

When you disable the NIC a entry as below should appear:

[15/Oct/2004 16:28:51] Service "DHCP" bound to address 192.168.1.1 stopped

After enabling the NIC again the first line should appear.

At startup, I see the DHCP server in the logs saying it is bound to both the WAN and LAN cards. I wish there was a way to stop the DHCP server from even binding to the WAN card as I do not have a scope defined for that card and don't want to offer DHCP services to the WAN anyway.
