DHCP Server - multiple scopes



  • Hi,

    I'm running 2.0-RELEASE on an ALIX box on my home network.

    My pfsense box performs PPPoE and acts as the firewall/DHCP/DNS for the network. I have a number of devices on the LAN, and I'd like to segrate the network with VLANs. I already have a VLAN trunk running from the pfsense box to the ethernet switch, with a separate VLAN for VOIP phones. The phones are able to manage the VLAN port allocation through CDP.

    I can't immediately see how to configure a second scope on the pfsense DHCP server to offer a separate range of addresses to the second VLAN. Also, the existing scope seems to be bound to the hardware interface instead of the vlan interface…..

    Is this possible, or do I need another DHCP server somewhere?

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Go to Services -> DHCP Server, click on the tab for the relevant VLAN interface, enable it and fill in the details.

    I would expect it to be on the VLAN interface but maybe there is something unusual about your configuration. What VLAN ids are you using? Is the hardware interface also an active pfSense interface (are you mixing VLAN and non-VLAN traffic on the same interface)?

    Thanks - turns out I hadn't enabled the vlan interface after assigning it, which was why I could create a DHCP server to run on it.
