    Hey everyone,
    I have this problem w/ a guy at work. He is in a remote branch, Static IP's, WIN98, peer to peer network. Anyway, he calls me like everyother day saying he can't connect to internet (means no email or connecting to the server here). I look and he has the IP address that I assigned him, but no internet. Give him another available address, and he works fine for about 48 hours, then calls back. Switch him back to old IP address and he'll work fine for 48 hours then, call back. Any ideas??? Thanks

    not in my area of knowledge, but is lease on the allocated address expiring every 48 hrs if you use dhcp on a router check to see if it is expiring

    How is his Internet access provided? Is it through your server, or by another method?

    I agree with dia, sounds like the IP's have not been taken out of the DHCP pool. Check to see if they have been taken out.

    They are not DHCP pooled. We have a list of available private IP's that are NATted behind a router. It is also only happening to one person. I am waiting to see how long he maintain's this IP before it stops working...
