Yes, I can ping properly to XS.

Yes, there are some machines which tried to register without connecting to
AP/ Router, as you stated  after restarting it disappears, but it does not,
I am still unable to register XO to server.

I agreed the XS provides DNS and DHCP, running dhcp service over a XS, I
find bit difficult  as I am still learning about XS services, I used the
simple hack to solve it. I will try without giving server address in control
panel--> network.
And get back to list.

Will anyone can tell me how I can check the files which run to register XO
with XS on XO, so that I will get the idea of scripts  that runs register
