Assign from Pool according to Relay Agent

Just off the cuff, but are you needing a shared-network declaration? We have requests coming from one network to the DHCP server that are actually for a second (or third) network. We have an empty declaration for the apparent source network as part of a shared-network included with the actual networks that the DHCP server is providing addresses for.

Sounds like it might be similar to what you need. I'm sure the experts around here can tell you for certain or explain what I've got wrong.

Subject: Assign from Pool according to Relay Agent

Hi all,

We have got a special need for a stupid router. The router is acting as a DHCP relay agent. However it sends the same address for the DHCP Discovery source IP and GIADDR fields.

So I need a way to say for example; if GIADDR equals to then assign IP addreses from this pool. But that pool is not in the same subnet with the GIADDR. Is it possible at all? I couldn't find any relevant answer to this..

Thanks in advance.
