This report includes a row for each DHCP lease assigned by the Firebox. Each row includes this information:
|IP Address||IP address the Firebox assigned to the client|
Machine name or host name of the device the IP address was assigned to, if available
|First Use||Time when the client requested the lease|
|Last Use||Time when the lease expired|

In Dimension, the report does not include the Hostname.
Locally-managed Fireboxes always send a log message for DHCP lease activity. There is nothing to configure to enable logging for this report.
