2 Physical Network and 2 DHCP server



  • Good day,

    I would like to ask if it is possible to link/meet the 2 DHCP server with 2 different NICS?

    I have:
    192.168.10.x\24 this is used by admin employees and
    10.0.0.x\22 this is used by the student

    the reason of the past IT personnel set-up the pfsense like this, so that the student cannot see the admin network (he didn't use Vlan). but the problem is the work around of the IT in terms of support.

    is there a way I can meet the two DHCP ?

    Thanks is advance and more power to all  :) :) :)

    It is not possible to use DHCP for two different subnets on the same interface.

    Each network must have its own interface. There is NO security in using multiple subnets on the same interface. Anyone could hardcode an address in the other subnet and see everything.

    I you have 192.168.10/24 on one interface of pfsense, and 10.0.0/22 on another any need them to talk - then create the firewall rules to allow them to talk.. Simple as that.
