Its passing correct information. That's how PPP works - all non-local
traffic goes out the pipe.

> I have a NT Server 4 machine (SP6a) that is running DHCP/WINS

> Access Server (Service) in network neighbourhood properties. 
> I selected the perle modem ports and assign for all to 
> "receive calls only", and with network attributes of "allow 
> unsecured password/allow clear text passwords", after which 
> the machine was again restarted and logged in.

> IP Address - aaa.bbb.ccc.144 (eg.)
> Subnet Mask -

> The server configuration is as follows:
> IP address:    aaa.bbb.ccc.11
> Subnet mask:
> Gateway:     aaa.bbb.ccc.1
> DNS:           aaa.bbb.ccc.10 (Server 2)
> It is running the following services
> 1) WINS/DHCP/RAS and the standard NT4 Server default

> What do I have to do to allow the DHCP to pass the IP address
