Greetings ....

Well want to remove gateway & dns at client end my current scenario is

I ve two servers and one dhcp server that assisgn ips to client along with the their repective gateway of client using mac based authentication dhcp header file caintain normal dhcp configuration while dhcp body having the congfiguration for both gateway and dsn .

Since my both gateway has independ they both have their own clients running,so it could be possible to acheive that task cause I will let dhcp to assign just ip and subnet to clients and remove gateway n dns part from there . I using squid in transparent mode for proxy . how to accomplish this I've seen this senerio on ISA 2000 one is dhcp server that assign ips to client and clients have isa client installed that have gateway ip which help the user for carrying http request and other in same way we have squid running in transparent mode . hope you guys got my point .

The process when entering a URL into a clients browser is depending upon DNS availability: it is important to resolve the name to a IP to decide whether to directly address it (when in the same subnet) or forward it via the proper gateway when non-local. You can surely use other means but dhcp to supply dns and gateway IPs to the clients ip subsystem. For linux, nsswitch.conf is a place to set up which services are used - but you still have to set the default gateway.
