what DHCP SERVER do when receive a dhcp release packet from client
 
hi,
all. As subject, when receive a dhcp release packet form client, dhcp server will put the ip back to pool , or just ignore it?

Well that depends on the implementation of the given DHCP server. as per the RFC it is meant to act upon it. A few experiemnts should show you exactly what's happening. http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2131.txt
