I just installed Opensolaris
uname  -a
SunOS opensolaris 5.11 snv_101b i86pc i386 i86pc Solaris

My system has two Network Interfaces bnx0 (has Public IP  
and bnx1 has and bnx:1 is having with /24  
network each.

# netstat -rn

Routing Table: IPv4
   Destination           Gateway           Flags  Ref     Use     Interface

I have installed CSWdhcp(ISC DHCP server) with

/opt/csw/bin/pkg-get install CSWdhcp

dhcp - ISC DHCP reference implementation(i386) 4.1.0,REV=2009.01.27

successfully installed.

I configured the dhcpd.conf with a range of IP and DHCP can be started  
normally. But it doees not allocate any IP address. In redame document  
I found the I have to issue a route add command looks like:

route add -host dev bnx1

It is saying "bnx1: bad value"

I want to send all reply to DHCP Offer from bnx1 for multiple subnets  
like some  IP range of and Network.

Please advise me what exact configuration do I need to do ?
