ddns-update-style interim;
ignore client-updates;

subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

# --- default gateway
option routers 192.168.0.2;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;

# option nis-domain "domain.org";
option domain-name "mytrek.com";
option domain-name-servers 192.168.0.2;

option time-offset -18000; # Eastern Standard Time
# option ntp-servers 192.168.1.1;
# option netbios-name-servers 192.168.1.1;

/usr/sbin/dhcpd start
the error is as under

No subnet declaration for start (0.0.0.0).
** Ignoring requests on start. If this is not what

to which interface start is attached. **

Two NICs and dhcpd

Hi.
I'm using Fedora 6 and 7 with dhcpd on two network cards with no problem.
I'll post my dhcpd.conf file here for you to see.

#
# DHCP Server Configuration file.
# see /usr/share/doc/dhcp*/dhcpd.conf.sample
#
ddns-update-style none;
lease-file-name "/var/lib/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases";
default-lease-time 600000;
max-lease-time 7200000;

shared-network HomeNET {
subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {

range 192.168.1.50 192.168.1.130;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
option routers 192.168.1.1;
option domain-name-servers xxx.xxx.xxx.1, xxx.xxx.xxx.2;

host Myserver {
fixed-address 192.168.1.210;
hardware ethernet 00:00:00:00:00:00;
}

# host a name {
# fixed-address the IP we want to be given to the pc;
# hardware ethernet the MAC address on the pc;
# }

}
}

shared-network WirelessNET {
subnet 192.168.10.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.10.50 192.168.10.120;
option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
option broadcast-address 192.168.10.255;
option routers 192.168.10.254;
option domain-name-servers xxx.xxx.xxx.1, xxx.xxx.xxx.2;
}
}

Only thing you need is to put in the right IP addresses and make sure that the network cards on your dhcpd server matches the network in this script.
This is a script I use (with some modifications) on a Linux server with 3 network cards, 1 outside and 2 inside and it works well.

There is a file where you can tell the server which interfaces to give out IP to but I can't remember where it is. I remember that in it you had to say dhcpdargs=eth1 and id you had two interfaces you'd add dhcpdargs=eth2
Hope this helps.

Sorry, I misread, thought you had two nics for dhcpd. in your case you'd just trim this down so it suits you and put static IP on eth1. But based on you config, all you want to do is give out ip to the wireless? If so you would need to put them on different subnet. It's not wise to have both nics on same subnet unless you are making transparent firewall which I'm not sure is possible in this, I know you can do it with Cisco but not sure about that setup.

/etc/sysconfig/dhcpd. Change the following line for the LAN interface.
set "DHCPARGS=eth0"
