DHCP Server

The UCx system can be used to provide DHCP services on your network. The UCx Web-based Configuration Utility allows you to set the following configurable properties:

  • Status of the DHCP service (enabled/disabled)
  • Range of IP addresses managed by the DHCP service
  • Lease time used for IP addresses
  • IP addresses of DNS and WINS servers provided to DHCP clients
  • Gateway IP address provided to DHCP clients

Typically, UCx systems are deployed on company networks that have a router that already provides DHCP services. Due to that, the default status of the DHCP server on UCx systems is set to disabled. If you plan to enable the DHCP server on your UCx system, please ensure that there is no other DHCP server on the network or that ranges of IP addresses managed by these servers do not overlap.

To configure the DHCP server on your UCx system, perform the following steps:

  1. Open the UCx Web-based Configuration Utility
  2. From the System tab, select Network
  3. From the left side column, select DHCP Server
  4. To change the configuration of the DHCP server, enter desired configuration data into the text fields and press the Save/Update button
  5. To change the status of the DHCP server, press the Enable DHCP or Disable DHCP button
