Re: [opensuse] DHCP server, VLAN and subnets

One thing a router can use is the interface

Here's an example. This arp cache shows the connections before I put
the computer E520 on the VLAN.

nexus7.xyz.net (172.16.1.95) at 08:60:6e:a8:96:0d [ether] on eth2
default (99.230.168.1) at 00:1f:ca:20:46:da [ether] on eth0
linux.xyz.net (172.16.1.10) at 00:15:f2:9c:a7:ac [ether] on eth2
E520.xyz.net (172.16.1.40) at 38:59:f9:e0:7d:5d [ether] on eth2


And after I put it on the VLAN and manually assign the IP address.

nexus7.xyz.net (172.16.1.95) at 08:60:6e:a8:96:0d [ether] on eth2
default (99.230.168.1) at 00:1f:ca:20:46:da [ether] on eth0
? (192.168.5.50) at 38:59:f9:e0:7d:5d [ether] on eth2.5
linux.xyz.net (172.16.1.10) at 00:15:f2:9c:a7:ac [ether] on eth2
E520.xyz.net (172.16.1.40) at <incomplete> on eth2

As you can see, the arp cache shows the computer as now on the VLAN
eth2.5 with address 192.168.5.50. Since this is the router computer,
that info is available to the DHCP server. The question mark in the
host name is due to there not being any DNS entry for that IP address.
