    dhcp server problem !!

    i have a dhcp server runs on linux server. this server works as a proxy server for a private network
    the /etc/dhcpd.conf has the configuration:

    option domain-name "";
    option domain-name-servers;
    option routers;
    ddns-update-style interim;
    ddns-updates on;
    ignore client-updates;
    default-lease-time 259200; # 3 days
    max-lease-time 604800; # 1 week
    authoritative ;
    subnet netmask {
    range dynamic-bootp;
    host tech {
    hardware ethernet <mac addr of tech>;

    when i try to start dhcp server it fails , and gives me the error:
    No subnet declaration for eth-<mac address of the external card> (
    ** Ignoring requests on eth-<mac address of the external card>. If this is not what
    you want, please write a subnet declaration
    in your dhcpd.conf file for the network segment
    to which interface eth-<mac address of the external card> is attached. **

    Not configured to listen on any interfaces!
    help please!!

    I could be wrong as it was a few years ago when I set mine up but I think I remember getting a similar error message.
    I think I had to do something like the following (as I say, could be mistaken):
    your dns setup:

    zone &#123;
    zone &#123;
    The rest of it looks pretty similar to mine tho
