 Subject:  register DHCP leases in DNS forwarder with static MAC assignment
 Date:  Mon, 16 May 2005 10:35:11 +0200
Dear friends of m0n0,

with the three checkboxes:

x Enable DNS forwarder

x Register DHCP leases in DNS forwarder

x Enable DHCP server on LAN interface

turned on, the following behaviour is seen:

 

Client sends DHCP request to m0n0: gets IP/etc. and name shows up in DNS:

nslookup client-name 

works fine.

 

Binding a MAC to an IP address.

Client sends DHCP request to m0n0: gets IP/etc. and name does not show up in
DNS:

nslookup client-name 

is not able to resolve the name. 

 

Can someone verify this behaviour (m0n0 used is 1.2b6)? 

Is this done on purpose? 

(One could argue: a static IP assignment is not DHCP - so it would be nice
to have an entry in DNS .)

 

Greetings

Thorsten
