Update on testing the new shared-network configuration:  My lab
network is the happiest network right now. This is great.

A few clarifications: I needed to set the source part of the
shared-network parameter to the IP of my relay, not the IP or
interface of my dnsmasq server. My dnsmasq server is at 10.200.200.1
which is bound to its br0 interface. My dhcp relay (Brocade switch)
holds the gateways for VLANs that need DHCP. The one I'm testing is a
vlan with an IP interface of 192.168.127.254/24 and a subinterface
192.168.128.254/24, so all requests from that VLAN are coming from
192.168.127.254.

I added this to my config:

shared-network=192.168.127.254,192.168.128.0

And it works!  I am even successfully handing out some addresses based
on nothing other than their subscriber-id (whole different talk show),
and it's now working.

What if I know that an interface is going to have multiple 'gateway'
IPs, but I'm not sure which one the switch/router will be using as its
source. In the example above, if I don't know whether or not the
requests will be coming from .127.254 or .128.254, can I safely just
have a 'shared-network' config line for each even though one will be a
bit redundant (shared-network=192.168.127.254,192.168.127.0)?

So far, this is really great. Thank you so much.

Ryan Gray
