Fine tune a script to insert router

In Reference to thread, Say thanks to the person who helped me !
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/Perl/Q_26821466.html#a34894213

I noticed that :

# NET 172.21.240.0/23
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 add scope 172.21.240.0 255.255.254.0 "172.21.240.0-Vlan-551" ""
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 6 STRING "128.163.97.5" "128.163.1.6"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 3 STRING "172.21.244.1"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 51 STRING "604800"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 44 STRING "128.163.111.170" "128.163.111.171"

Put an invalid router option  optionvalue 3 STRING "172.21.244.1"

My calculations shows the gateway/router should be 172.21.240.1

I would appreciate someones help please

while ( <> )
{
	if ( /\# NET ([0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+)\.([0-9]+)/ ) { $net = $1; $lastNum = $2+1;  }
	else
	{
		s/set optionvalue 3 STRING \"0.0.0.0\"/set optionvalue 3 STRING \"$net\.$lastNum\"/;
	}
	print $_;
}

Strange!  Is this with a different dhcp.txt input file?  Please post the input so I can try running it here.

When I create a small file with just this input:

# NET 172.21.240.0/23
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 add scope 172.21.240.0 255.255.254.0 "172.21.240.0-Vlan-551" ""
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 6 STRING "128.163.97.5" "128.163.1.6"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 3 STRING "0.0.0.0"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 51 STRING "604800"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 44 STRING "128.163.111.170" "128.163.111.171"

Open in new window


it generates the correct 172.21.240.1 output.

Are you sure the optionvalue 3 line in the input file has 0.0.0.0, like this:

Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 3 STRING "0.0.0.0"

If it doesn't have 0.0.0.0, it won't match.

Ahh, so.... the orginal file did not have 0.0.0.0, it had

# NET ---
# NET 172.21.240.0/23
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 add scope 172.21.240.0 255.255.254.0 "172.21.240.0-Vlan-551" ""
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 6 STRING "128.163.97.5" "128.163.1.6"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 3 STRING "172.21.244.1"
Dhcp Server 1.1.1.1 Scope 172.21.240.0 set optionvalue 51 STRING "604800"

So I guess, would it be hard to counter these types to insure in fact the router is set right??

Thanks

To replace all the optionvalue 3 strings regardless of their IPs in the input file, use this:

while ( <> )
{
	if ( /\# NET ([0-9]+\.[0-9]+\.[0-9]+)\.([0-9]+)/ ) { $net = $1; $lastNum = $2+1;  }
	else
	{
		s/set optionvalue 3 STRING \"[0-9\.]+\"/set optionvalue 3 STRING \"$net\.$lastNum\"/;
	}
	print $_;
}

Cool, So the above has the correct logic right? I am just worried it may set what it wants, but I believe it does check the network regardless right?

To summarize the latest version of the code:

It grabs each #NET address, keeps the first 3 numbers and numerically adds "1" to the fourth number.  This is the gateway IP.

This new version of the code looks for the line containing "set optionvalue 3 STRING", whether it already has a non-zero IP or not, and substitutes the new gateway IP it computed from the #NET line.

The only difference is that the previous version of the code required the input IP to be all zeroes.  The new version doesn't care.  Nothing else changed.
