    Strange DHCP entries

    Hi all

    I'm seeing quite a few entries in our DHCP address leases that I don't recognise and which don't follow the usual standards. One example is:

    IP: 172.16.1.147
    Name: 172.16.1.147 (I would expect to see the device name here)
    Type: DHCP/BOOTP
    Unique ID: 3137322e31362e312e31343700 (normally this would be a mac address)

    I have about 30 of these types of entries and there is no ping response any any that I've tried. Also, our DHCP server is reporting that it's nearly out of address leases so if I could reclaim these strange entries that would be ideal.

    Does anyone know what these entries are for?

    Thanks in advance

    has someone plugged something in somewhere into your network ? those are all private IP's so my guess is somewhere someone may have plugged a router in on your network maybe ?
