dhcpd puzzle
How can you make your DHCP server give out a different IP address to a different network segment.


- currently my dhcp server leases addresses from eth1 -

- which connects into a Cisco 2600 router eth 0/0 -


- also on the Cisco 2600 router is eth 0/1 -

- which connects to several PCs


my dhcp server can lease addresses of the same subnet to the network without a problem


what i want to do is lease 10.x.x.x IP addresses to the network ( instead of the usual 192.168.0.x IPs )


Is this possible? and how would you do it? and do I need a relay agent for this?

yep. dhcprelay might be the way.

Ok I figured it out. Yes you need a relay agent that talks to both the clients and the server. And you need to run either a link state or distance vector protocol that advertises all the networks on your router. So yes, you can lease a 10Net address over 192 Network and route with it.
