DHCP with Novell Client 2 SP2 issue

Hello,

I have the following situation... looking for a pointer in the right direction...

Current issue...

SLES 10 OES 2 server that runs DHCP...
DHCP give out the following subnets...
10.2.0.0 - Actual site and NIC card is 10.2.0.31
192.168.27.0 - External site

When a Windows XP or Window 7 pc connects onto the 10.2.0.0 network the System Login Profile (set up to recieve context and server via DHCP) works and gets the correct information it needs

While at the External site (192.168.27.0) XP works fine with regards to login but WIndows 7 cannot get any information populated for Tree/Context/Server
When checking the DHCP log I notice that a system coming from the external site recieves a continuious string of the same message then it stops "dhcpd: DHCPINFORM"

Any help is much appreciated
Cheers

Are you saying you took a LAN trace on the client and see the client request the info and the DHCP server responds with the requested slp info?

Do you have a firewall running on this server or between it and the
workstations in question? If so would be worth disabling to see if
that changes the situation.
Are there any routers involved between that server and the workstations
in question? If so I could imagine a possible issue of problems with
the BootP forwarder of the router. For that I would look at LAN traces
on either side of the router.
