DHCP with dual gateway
Posted on 2007-04-03
I have a network setup where I have two gateways - one secure (filtered), one not.
I want to setup some machines on one, and others on the other.
Any undefined (new) machines will by default connect to the secure gateway.
I assume then the only way I can set this up, is to assign DHCP Pool to the secure gateway.
Then assign reservations to the clients that need the unsecure gateway.
My problem is there are many clients that will use the unsecure, and the clients are wireless laptops that may either use cable or wireless (2 Mac addresses)
I want to keep it all centrally managed. Is reservations the only way I can do this? Is there a DHCP manager available? Should I look at this a different way?
I am running WIndows 2003 Server with Windows XP clients. I have been using DHCP for years but have only had the second gateway issue introduced recently.
