If setting Inactivity Timeout value triggers IP spoofing events then lower the Inactivity Timeout value with respect to the DHCP lease time.

System administrators usually lower their lease time when they run out of IP addresses. When the lease time is equal or lower than the Inactivity timer, then IP spoofing event is triggered.
