Hi All,

  Well, I've had a stab at this, but haven't managed to get it going just
  I now have a batch of 8 IP's on a /29 subnet.
  My ISP has said, make your router
  You cant use or - 253 are available to you.

  My linux box has booted up, and assigned its self on ppp0 to have, P-t-P of and netmask of

  I have setup my dhcpd to have:
     A network address of, netmask of
     An address range of -

     But it moans that address range to is not
     on net

      Have also tried with netmask of

    I have made the mods to my shorewall conf - assigning the local_net IP in
    my params as

    But I guess as I cant get my dhcp assigning my ip I cant get that far :(

    My eth0 interface is setup as per the ppp0 interface, although it has
    a broadcast address    of (?) and a netmask of
    If i turn off dhcp my other pcs can ping the firewall router and use
    the web.    So half the hurdle is the dhcp ide of it I think.

    I have emptied my masq file, which i no longer need :)

    Aside from that ive made no other changes to my shorewall config :)

     Thanks for any help, i guess it may be slightly ot ish with that
     dhcp thing.
