dhcp - bad subnet/mask combination


Hi,

I'm trying to run a dhcp server on eth1, but I keep getting the error "bad subnet number/mask combination."

Can anyone help?

Here is my dhcpd.conf file:

Quote:
default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 172800;
log-facility local7;
ddns-update-style ad-hoc;

#Basic subnet declaration
subnet 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
range 192.168.1.10 192.168.1.15;
}
What is wrong with this combination and how can I find the right one?

Thanks,
Ewan
