DHCP server and client

Postby marius_1956 » 2. Jun 2019, 17:44

I apologize for the very basic question.
I created two Windows guest VMs and connected both to the same "internal" network.
I configured one of the guest VM as a DHCP server and the other one as a DHCP guest.
The DHCP guest can't get an IP address from the DHCP host.
How should I confngure the network and/or network interfacers to let the DHCP client get an IP address from the DHCP server?
Regards

Post the output of the following command from both VMs:

    ipconfing /a

I'm afraid, in the meantime I changed the adapter and assigned static IP addresses to both VM so I don't think that the output of the command is meaningful.
by the way, VMs communicate now without any problem.
However, let me ask a different question: imagine that the configuration is ok for both VMs, how should the network be confngured?
Is it correct to confngure an Internal network with promiscuous mode disabled?
