Question Does the LM26/44 work as a DHCP server Answer No, the LM44 does not work as a DHCP server. By default, the LM44 is in Auto IP (Zero Conf.) and will not take a IP address offered by a DHCP server. If you want the LM44 to take a IP address offer from a DHCP server, this needs to be changed from the Technical Data menu inside the I/O Config view of the Lake Controller for the device from Auto IP to DHCP.
