How does an Spirent TestCenter (STC) DHCP server decide when to comply with the client’s suggested lease time and when to ignore it?


In STC DHCP server, there are two properties:
“Lease Time” and “Min Allowed Lease Time”. 
STC DHCP server will use clients “suggested lease time” if “suggested lease time” >= “Min Allowed Lease Time” AND “suggested lease time” <=“Lease Time”, otherwise it will not.

1st  snap shot show Server set for min 600s and lease time 3600s.
2nd snap shot show Client set for 700s lease time.

In this case the Server will accept suggested lease time.
