I use m0n0wall on my campus intranet to section off my own little lan in
my dorm from the larger campus lan.

In the firewall logs, I noticed that m0n0wall would repeatedly attempt
to get different ip addresses from dhcp on the wan side, even if it had
already been assigned one. The requests would fail and I'd continue to
use the original one.

I didnt think much of this until sunday when I was booted off the
network for having taken every available ip address on our subnet.

I just wanted to know if anyone else had seen this and if so, how you
went about fixing it.

I'm running the most recent stable version of m0n0wall, and have the wan
interface set up to not block private networks, so that i'm able to
secure shell back through the firewall from on campus and reach my
computers behind m0n0wall.

I guess the argument could be made that this is my school's own fault,
not having their own dhcp set up right but I was hoping there could be
something I could do on my end to prevent this besides using a static ip
(which it dept frowns on).

I love the product! Keep up the great work!
