DHCP-Server warning



  • Hi

    I have installed 2.1 RC0 and have always a warning on the DHCP server page.
    I don't know why, because the warning is useless in my opinion. All interfaces have an static IP.

    Why is this message all the time there?

    The DHCP Server can only be enabled on interfaces configured with static IP addresses.
    Only interfaces configured with a static IP will be shown.

    I believe it only shows up when you first access the DHCP section (e.g. go to services_dhcp.php) once you pick an interface tab, if the interface has a static IP, it goes away.

    The code could maybe be a bit smarter about when to display the message, but ultimately it's there because people question why some interfaces are not in the list and it's because those interfaces have dynamic IPs.
