Monitoring Windows DHCP With PRTG

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server is one of the unsung heroes of the Windows networking infrastructure.

In anything other than the smallest environments, this would be simply impossible.

This project has now started with great success. We visited the museum a few weeks ago and captured the impressions in a video.
