    I want to know more about DHCP Proxy service so please send e the link of DHCP Proxy technical document.
    Can I restrict the device through DEVICE MAC address using MAC List.?

    I have WDM 4.5.1 and WSM 1.1 installed on separate machine on my network and all were running same time. When I maked an image job schedule from WDM for device, at the time of booting some time device connect to to WDM proxy and some time it connect to WSM proxy which can see at the time of booting. I have also a DHCP Sever on same network. How can I manage the DHCP Proxy Service.?

    From WSM Server can I restrict the device Using DHCP Proxy MAC List, that which device are allowed to stream the OS and which are not.?

    Can other OS i.e Wyse Linux v6, Windows CE.net streamed.? as you know S10 Blazer can streamed using PXE “pxelinux.0” booting file.

    Hi Enam,

    That’s a good question.

    WDM has its own DHCP proxy service that only responds to Wyse MAC ID’s. That is a DHCP broadcast from a device with a MAC of 00 80 64 XX XX XX. Also the device must have been registered in the database before WDM will respond to it. To do this the device must have the Hagent installed.

    In this way if you boot a V0 it will never end up in the WDM database and will never be managed (which is what we want)

    With WSM 1.1 there is a small extra DHCP proxy service that you can install to stop WSM trying to stream to everything. In later versions this service is installed by default. I would recommend upgrading to WSM 1.2.2 as is has this service and a number of other enhancements.

    Currently WSM supports streaming to any PC (not just Wyse V0 clients) and will deliver Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows XPe. CE and Linux are not supported yet, as no one big enough has asked I guess. Blazer is also not supported however as you point out the OS is so small you can just network boot the whole thing (this is not really streaming)

    I hope this helps!
