B205: Floods of DHCP queries

Jump to solution
Product Name: Xerox B205

Xerox B205 with firmware V3.50.01.60_20200715 connected via ethernet cable.

TCP/IP version 6 is disabled.

TCP/IP version 4 is configured to use DHCP. This works, but the B205 repeats the DHCP query every 2 seconds, flooding the DHCP server and clogging the logfiles.

I have now disabled DHCP and entered static data, but this is not desired.

What can I do to stop the B205 from flooding the DHCP server?

Thanks for your reply.

TCP/IP, in particular DHCP, is configured and functioning.

Network Setup

TCP/IP Settings
TCP/IP Enabled:Enabled
Host Name:b205
IP Address:192.168.1.81
Subnet Mask:255.255.255.0
Default Gateway:192.168.1.1
Automatic Addressing:DHCP/Auto IP

 

The problem is that, after the DHCP handshake:

the printer gets its lease and should refresh after 6 hours (the DHCP lease time). However, it reissues DHCP requests every two seconds.

Hi, Friend !

We`re comrades in misfortune.

We`re also have the same problem. 

But by chance we found that problem is being solved when wi-fi is turned off.

P.S Question to Xerox support. Why?!

This does, indeed, seem to solve the DHCP floods.

I was under the assumption that everything settable from the front panel could also be set from the CWIS.
