DHCP - Static Mapping



  • I´ve setup the DHCP Server with the range 192.168.0.100~192.168.0.199. I would like to setup some static mappings within this range, however the GUI doen´t permit, its permit only mappings out of this range. This is a bug?



  • Please show the error message that the GUI is displaying.



  • This is known behaviour. m0n0 does it the same way iirc. Not sure if it is a limitation of the dhcpd to have a non conflicting range of IPs with static mappings outside of this range.

    Well, in others systems the dhcpd allow do static mapping within the range.

    Because this current limitation, I´m not using the DHCP Server in pfsense, I´m using in windows server. But the error is like 'cannot do revervation within the range'.



  • In the same page where do static mapping, if the host field is ignored, the webgui save the first mapping and when I will do the second one, the webgui display a error like: We already have a host with this name!

    I think this was discussed in others posts!!



  • I think this is a matter of differing views of how a DHCP server should operate. I happen to think the implementation is absolutely correct and one should never put a reservation within the scope. That being said, I the current ISC DHCP server (IIRC, since v3) allows putting reservations within the scope, so if you really need this you could either write a patch or post a bounty to have someone do it. Or just run DCHP on a different box. If you have a server on the network, why run DCHP on the firewall anyway?
