That's not true! IF a DHCP server has leased an IP address to an other
machine, there is a lease time and a lease period. During the lease time,
the client can alwasy extend the lease with the lease period. The DHCP
server must accept this extend. Hence: once you got an IP address, you can
use it forever as long as you keep extending the lease within the lease
period.
