I dont think this would work too well. The users who are infected often
think something is wrong because their connection and computer are not
working quite right. So they disconnect / reconnect / reboot so they burn
through quite a few dynamic IP addresses along the way.
so they provide short lease times and change IP as often as itīs feasible
interrupting service unneccessarily.
Huh ? This is an artifact of the way PM3s and MAX 6096s work with respect
to how IP addresses are assigned out of pools.... i.e. this is the default
behaviour. The same goes for our DSL pool.
