Scan for DHCP devices


Hi,
I need to scan my network for a potentially DHCP configured printer or print-server - which mess things a lot. As I get a large number of these, scanning would be my best option.
How can I do that?

I tried nmap but couldn't find the correct options.

Thx for your help.

scanning for a DHCP **client**? there's nothing notable about a DHCP configured client to a statically configured client unless you have access to the DHCP leases on the server side...

Sorry for such a late answer and thank for your answer.
That's what I feared actually. Well I'll manage this in another way.

Thx.
