I came across a posting from Jim Wang,
http://m0n0.ch/wall/list/showmsg.php?id=166/78, regarding testing the dhcp
server on m0n0wall. He was looking to setup a dhcp subnet that is different
to subnet the m0n0wall is in and have it serve IPs via a dhcp relay. I am
also looking for this functionality.
Am not sure if I have explained this well, so here's an attempt in ascii.
Wireless Clients ----> Tropos ----> m0n0wall
using DHCP 192.168.50.x/24 192.168.x.x/24
Relay DHCP to DHCP subnet is
192.168.x.x is the m0n0wall IP.
192.168.50.x is the Tropos IP.
The idea is to have the clients use a different subnet to the tropos
subnet. Tropos will be relaying to the m0n0wall so might or might not need
a default route. Note that Tropos fills the giaddr field in the DHCP
request with its own 192.168.50.x address.
Is this a supported configuration using m0n0wall?
