I need to create the network below:
- The router is a Linux box (don't care about the flavor), it has 2 NIC's.
- The switch is unable to support VLAN's.
- The servers need a WAN-IP. NAT is not an option.
- This is all I get to work with (yeey budget-cuts).
How do I go about building this router (that isn't always a router)? Some of the servers need an IP that is assigned by the ISP based upon the MAC-address but the DNS-discovery doesn't travel over the router. Is there any way I can tell dhcpd to pass these requests to the ISP? Will I have a problem with routing?
I've looked into virtual nics but couldn't find a solution for my problem. I'm open to all suggestions at this point.
