3com SuperStack II Netbuilder 432 DHCP Problems

3com SuperStack II Netbuilder 432 DHCP Problems


I am using a fully functional 3com SuperStack II Netbuilder 432, which has 2x 10/100TX Ethernet ports and other WAN ports.

The software version is with Firmware Version 1.3 and X25 version 3.3.

I want to assign local IP's to interface !1, and I have configured it exactly to both the knowledgebase article and the software configuration guide. The clients refuse to get an IP address from the router...

The DHCP CONTrol is enable, addresspool and I have set all DHCP configuration data, such as the basic ones like AddressPool etc...

I have tried removing all the system configuration files, making a full system factory reset, but still no luck. I have tried different IP's addresses in the addresspool and the netaddr, I wish to use for the IP and to for the address pool.

I have checked the knowledgebase about clients refusing to get IP's, it suggested something about remote clients, and that I should enable UDPHelper and open port 86 (or similar).. that does not work.

If you know how and have had DHCP working on any Netbuilder router, please let me know.

Many Thanx ! If there is any more info you guys need, please let me know !
