Thanks but i have noticed that this only applies to IPv6 and not to IPv4, is that right ? Best Regards If it is windows 2008 go to the Microsoft library: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/libr ... 59178.aspx After you enable it, you will find event logs for the following: ID: A DHCP server event ID code. Date: The logged on entry date on the DHCP server. Time: The log in time for the entry on the DHCP server. Description: A description of this DHCP server event. IP Address: The IP address of the DHCP client. Host Name: The host name of the DHCP client. MAC Address: The media access control (MAC) address used by the network adapter hardware of the client.
