DHCP: Two subnets and some machines on both


Hi everyone,

I have two separate subnets (192.168.2.0/24 and 192.168.8.1/24) and I would like my DHCP to give some machines (including mine) a 192.168.2.X address using a 255.255.0.0 subnet so I can access both, but not everyone should!

My gues was to do something like

host Benja{
hardware ethernet XXXXXX;
fixed-address 192.168.2.22;
fixed-netmask 255.255.0.0;
}

but it doesn't work...

Any idea?

Thanks!

is your DHCP server an embedded device such as a router or is it a dedicated machine?

Solved!

Ok, I've got it (from a friend of mine)

host benja{
hardware ethernet 00:1e:37:XX:XX:XX;
fixed-address benja.localdomain;
option subnet-mask 255.255.0.0;
}
