Thanks for the reply. My concern is that a hidden master shouldn't be
touch but for the slaves...
So I was thinking that the DHCP servers would talk to with what I
consider a supervisory slave, and he would distribute down to the
slaves. The Hidden Master does not need to have garbage about the
students work station, does it?
So I was thinking that having the supervisory slave would be updated by
the DHCP servers, and he would push the info to the other 3 slaves.
What are your thoughts.
