The Juniper project is back on the rails. The DHCP problem seems to be under control, through a combination of reducing DHCP lease times (to hours instead of days), and disabling ICMP blocking in Windows Firewall. It wasn't my decision to block ICMP. Sometimes you can be too paranoid for your own good. For example, ICMP is used to negotiate MTU sizes between disparate networks. I can tell you a story about a major website that blocked all ICMP and wasn't able to communicate with anyone running smaller-than-normal MTUs. Which is a lot of people.
