RE: [K12OSN] DHCP and multiple subnets


Thank you for your quick response.  After a bit of speculation, I had a
"sneaking suspicion" that what you described may be the only way to do it.
I guess I will have to get busy if I want to have it in before the new year.

Thanks again,

	you can have a private network served by dhcpd server on your
k12ltsp box, but there is one major caveat to be observed: you *don't*
want to run 2 distinct network segments on common wire. solution: either
separate the network physically into separate subnets or use a good switch
which will do it for you virtually - you can have each port connected to a
different segment. julius
