Multiple DHCP Pools for bridged interfaces?



  • Great feature, but just wondering if this will allow me to create multiple DHCP pools and bind an interface to a specific pool, e.g:

    eth1 - 192.168.1.1
    eth2 - 192.168.2.1
    eth3 - 192.168.3.1

    Thanks

    Phil

    Not sure I follow what you're trying to do.

    This is for multiple pools within a single subnet on a single interface.

    If those are separate interfaces in different subnets they can already have unique DHCP pools, they always could, just use the other tabs across the top of the DHCP server config.



  • @jimp:

    I'm wondering if it will allow multiple pools within a single subnet across multiple bridged interfaces.

    Not the way you're implying, it can't. It allows/denies access to the individual pools by mac address (or they can be open for all to use), but there isn't a way for the DHCP daemon to distinguish which interface the queries enter in a bridged setup that I recall. Or if there is, it's not supported by this.

    What you're suggesting is a fundamentally flawed design. If you want different interfaces in different subnets, don't bridge them. You're just asking for trouble trying to craft something odd like that. And it's far, far off topic for the original thread (I split it off into a new thread).
