DHCP monitoring

"Real time" table

This table shows the list of all the hosts that have obtained an IP address through the firewall's DHCP server. For each host, the "DHCP monitoring" view displays the following data:

IP address

Indicates the IP address assigned to the host. This address comes from one of the address ranges declared in the Network > DHCP module.

Status Indicates that the IP address referenced in the table is used (active) or free in the DHCP range.
Lease begins Indicates the date and time at which the DHCP server assigned an address to the host. This is displayed in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.
Lease ends

Indicates the date and time at which the IP address assigned by the firewall's DHCP server will be available again if the host does not send any new requests to renew the lease. The lease duration can be customized in the Network > DHCP > Advanced properties > Assigned lease time module.

This is displayed in YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.

MAC address Indicates the MAC address of the network card bearing the IP address assigned by the firewall's DHCP server.
Host name Indicates the name of the host to which the IP address was assigned.
