DhcpAddFilterV4 function (dhcpsapi.h)

The DhcpAddFilterV4 function adds a link-layer address or address pattern to the allow/deny lists.

Syntax

DWORD DHCP_API_FUNCTION DhcpAddFilterV4(
  [in] DHCP_CONST WCHAR     *ServerIpAddress,
  [in] DHCP_FILTER_ADD_INFO *AddFilterInfo,
  [in] BOOL                 ForceFlag
);

Parameters

[in] ServerIpAddress

Pointer to a Unicode string that specifies the IP address or hostname of the DHCP server.

[in] AddFilterInfo

Pointer to a DHCP_FILTER_ADD_INFO structure that contains a link-layer address or address pattern to add to the DHCP server's allow/deny list.

[in] ForceFlag

If TRUE, any existing matching filter is overwritten; if FALSE, the call fails with ERROR_DHCP_LINKLAYER_ADDRESS_EXISTS.

Return value

This function returns ERROR_SUCCESS upon a successful call. Otherwise, it returns one of the DHCP Server Management API Error Codes.

Return code Description
ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED
This call was performed by a client who is not a member of the "DHCP Administrators" security group.
ERROR_DHCP_JET_ERROR
An error occurred while accessing the DHCP server's database.
ERROR_DHCP_LINKLAYER_ADDRESS_EXISTS
The address or address pattern already exists in an allow/deny list.

Remarks

This API allows DHCP clients whose addresses have been added to the allow list to obtain leases, and blocks those added to the deny list. The respective lists must be enabled with a call to DhcpSetFilterV4.
