linux as a gateway


hello there,
well am new to Linux and am having some problems... i have already set up a private network and i have used a Linux box as a means to perform NAT. I have already set up my DHCP server and its working. Now, I have to add 2 more subnets and i want to know if i will need to set up 2 more DHCP servers or if i will have to configure my existing DHCP server to allocate different network IDs to different subnets. i would also like to know how to do it. Please do help me... its really urgent....

Thx in advance

No, this isn't urgent for us. Don't flag your posts as urgent...we volunteer our time, so telling us to hurry isn't very polite.

Since you've got DHCP working, you obviously know how to configure it, and set up network ranges. This involves setting up two more ranges, but you don't need two more DHCP server instances, just configure two more zones.
