In this post, I will analyze the dhcp process, when the dhcp server is not on the local locan, but on a remote lan. As we saw on the previous posts, dhcp packets are sent as broadcasts.

Analyzing Dhcp Process With Wireshark

In this post, I will analyze the dhcp process using wireshark. Before I begin a few things to note. On windows if you do an ipconfig /release the pc will not go through the entire dhcp process and most likely will send a request, requesting the same ip address. to force the whole process you have to do, net stop dhcp.
