DHCP Reservation on



  • Hi Guys,
    on a hardware firewall we have installed the 2.3.3-RELEASE-p1 (amd64) .
    we have 4 printers which has gotten a dhcp release from the firewall, i want the IP adresses of the Printers to be excluded on the dhcp.
    i looked on the dhcp server , i have just add static mapping and WOL mapping .

    can someone please point me to the right directions to do this ?

    thank you

    So you want your printers to get specific IPs in this network?  Is how I am reading it.

    Then sure create reservations/static mappings..  These would be outside your normal pool.

    So for example your network is 192.168.1/24 for example.. Pfsense having IP 192.168.1.1, lets say you have your dhcp pool set to 192.168.1.10 to .250..

    Create your printers reservations at say .9, .8, .7
