Another convinient feature for DHCP server would be to make an "Add" button (+ 
or whatever it would be) in "DHCP leases" page beside each lease so one could 
add mac address to "Services: DHCP: Edit static mapping" just by clicking that 
button (or whatever it would be) and entering IP address and descripption (and 
host name from coulg go to the discription field).

And for PPTP VPN Server is it possible to add an option to enter WINS server 
just as it's possible on "DHCP server" page?

Thanks again,
