DHCP on multiple internal networks?
« on: February 14, 2008, 03:59:49 pm »
From the documentation at and the configuration it would appear that DHCP can only be bonded to one nic?

What if you have two nics in addition to the wan nic that represent two separate internal networks? Is it possible to configure DHCP for each internal network or only one?

Thank you,

If you create a subnet in the range that matches the second nic, dhcp should automatically bond to the second nic...i haven't tested this in ebox though.

My network was originally setup like this.  I later purchased a layer 3 switch and started using DHCP helper address.
