Spirent TestCenter: Why does it takes so long for a DHCP emulated clients to get an IP address?

  • Spirent TestCenter.
  • DHCP server (DUT).
  • DHCP emulated clients.
If the DHCP server did not answer the Discover message, the client would wait for the message timeout to expire to send another Discover message.
By default, the message timeout is 60 seconds; to modify the timer, you need to:
  • Click on the port in which you have the DHCP emulated client.
  • Select the DHCP tab.
  • Modify the Message timeout to a value lower than 60.
