How to assign public ip's using dhcpd on mandrake
Posted on 2003-03-09
I have a server running mandrake 8.2
my connection is a fiber optic connection from my local hydro company.
I get no email no service at all with this service its wide open to the world
with no blocked ports and no cap its a commercial service.
So i decided to start a wireless ISP with it i have knowledge of private networking
but not much on public networking.
I've been allocated public ip's from x.x.x.226 to 238
my system has two network cards eth0 has address x.x.x.226 which has the fiber connected
directly to it, then i have eth1 with address 192.168.0.1 connected to a switch hub.
This is where i have (for now) one system connected directly to that switch and one wireless access
point connected to (I only have one client and one access point for now till i do test and have it working).
What i would like to do is use DHCP on the mandrake system to allocate my range of PUBLIC! ip address's to clients rather then dumb ass private ip's like 192.168.x.x
I've been seaching the net for weeks no about dhcp and i've even read the entire handbook on dhcp
and man i'm gettin frustrated, anything reffered to in the documents always reffers to private ip's
Can some help with this problem?
Thank you in advanced.
