    This is this weeks discussion question in my net402 class. I am having a hell of a time grasping subnetting, but I'm getting there. So this is the scenario, what are some possible resolutions?
    Thanks ( I know there are some IT gods on this board )

    delete one of the subnets, and merge the two, scopes depending on purpose

    Thanks fly fast. That does seem to make sense. If you remove one of the subnets and then merge them the DHCP would assign them IP's without a problem.

    The whole purpose of DHCP Relay Agent is to allow two different segments to use one DHCP server serving both segments.

    That will work, but my guess its not the answer they are looking for. I would suggest taking a look at http://www.tacteam.net/isaserverorg/vpnkitbeta2/dhcprelay.htm. They are using the idea for a VPN but its the same theory.

    no i dont think hes question had anything to do with VPN. Regardless i hate MCSE courses, and will be happy to have finished them. Although i now hate novell even more and understand why no one uses it.

    I don't think his question is about VPN, but its the same concept... He wants to route DHCP service and you do that the same way through a VPN or just a router...

    i know shit all about dhcp relay agent, but if you want to open separate network segments to dhcp requests and receives through a router you generally need to open ports 67-68 udp at the router for traffic to pass between the subnets. the dhcp relay agent may serve that purpose

    Yup DHCP relay agent was what I was looking for. Thanks again. I had no idea we had a computer and programming forum. I am noob.

    Thanks again.
