For security purposes I run my DHCP on a server (not the firewall) and each
of the connecting PCs is set up in a table based on its MAC address.
Computers whose MAC addresses are not listed get an IP address in a block
with rules that block all inward and outward bound network traffic. I also
get an e-mail notifying me of the connection of a non-defined device. Sure
it makes new PC setup somewhat of a pain but it goes a long way to prevent
rogue computers on my network.
