    We get quite a lot of issues with wifi devices due to the fact they can change IP address when moving between AP's and the PDQ server will cache the DNS record for 24 hrs.

    If i try and ping the device from the PDQ server it will attempt to ping the old IP address and fail, run ipconfig /flushdns and try again then all is well.

    I've contemplated setting a scheduled task on the server to flush DNS records every hour or so, but doesn't seem a great solution.

    I've been flushing the DNS on the server side and on the Remote Access box where the tools like PDQ are located fairly often during this issue and it doesn't seem to have solved it at any time so I'm really not sure what the issue is. Thanks anyway. If you think of anything else I'd love to hear it. M.

    This is such a big issue and still not sure how to solve this? Devices are online when they are off. Deleting won't fix it either.

    We made some improvements in 19.1.96.0 that should help with that.
