DHCP - Add an additional subnet route to local workstation interface

Hello Experts,

I have a need to provide PC workstations with a DHCP supplied static route to an additional subnet existing on the same physical LAN.

The Client IP addesses are 192.168.0.x (DHCP allocated)
The additional subnet on this physical LAN is 203.x.x.0

I can do this manually from the client PC's as follows
route add 203.x.x.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.x

I would like to do this via DHCP if possible.

Thanks in advance (sorry for the stingy points, all I have left).

(Windows 2003 DHCP)

Why don't you just add the route on your default gateway router or firewall?
Just curious.

Unless you have a real reason not to do it, It is better to have the router set the packet path for the subnet. That way you do not need to be worry about running a route command on each system. However, you will need to make sure the router's address is sent to clients via DHCP. (change the Gateway's address supplied by DHCP).

Let me know

thanks,
Michael

You can configure your gateway in the scope.

Did you try to add two subnets for one interface , in your DHCP server configuration file?
