DHCP redirect?

    I am installing a few thin clients (fat turned thin lol) around my home for various reasons and for testing. But I have come to a point in the documentation that I am not too sure about. It states the following:
    My main router is a WRT54GS with tomato 1.04. That is my DHCP server. Where in the config would I go to make that change? I have looked through the web interface and see a place or two that it could possibly go but I do not want to foobar this. Thanks in advance.

    Is it necessary that these servers use DHCP ? Most server and LAN environments use static IP assignment for the reliability, stability, predictability and functionality of a static IP.

    Yes. It is a part of the PXE boot from what I understand. It hits the DHCP server and gets the server IP for the terminal server.

    I'm sure you will find somebody that also wears PXE boots, and they may know. I wear Nike Air Max, and they take static IP. Wish I could help you more.

    I could simply disable the dhcp on the tomato router and run it on the server but that is not what I want to do. I logged into the router via ssh and had a look around. I did not find anything that was remotely close to what I needed. So maybe one of the guru's would know.

    And about the "shoes" comment. :rofl: I actually run DHCP with static leases. That way I can just set it up once and not have to worry about it again. I can nke the machine and not have to worry about what ip it was and setting all that up on the pc. ;)

    you don't have a DHCPD in Tomato the DNSMASQ also takes care of the DHCP...
    this will add the line you need to your dnsmasq.conf
    I hope it will work for you :grin:

    Well I tried the stuff via ssh to the box. This is what I got:

    Here is what the file says when I open it via vi:
    it doesn't like that next-server line. :(

    it's a different parameter for DNSMASQ

    It took that. WOOT. Now to see if the pc will boot with that. *crosses fingers*
