You can do what you want, but I think most DHCP servers expect the clients
to comply with periodically re-upping the lease. I'm not sure, but I think
the lease period is probably specified by the server when the ip is granted.
Read the manpages for client and servers to find out more.
You could, for instance, simply change your network to use a static address
with the ip you receive from the dhcp server -- but of course this would
I did that but the client still goes for renewal. Temporary solution I have
is to kill the DHCP client (not allow it to run). I am sure that there is
a sane solution avaiilable in this group.
