Setting Up a Virtual Network Lab with VMware Workstation and pfSense – Part 5, DHCP server

Now reboot the server and once rebooted log in and go back to the DHCP manager where you can review your new scope.


you can now start up your virtual client that we created in Part 2 of this tutorial and go to the cmd prompt and give an ipconfig /all command. you can see that it now has an IP address in the range that we set our DHCP server to hand out. the DNS sever is also listed correctly.


Now when you go back to your server with the client still running you can view it in the DHCP manager under address leases, you will see the Client01 pc in your domain.


Our next step will be to add the Client01 PC to the active directory domain. Stay tuned!
