    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 "my-network.net";
    option domain-name-servers 10.0.0.1;
    option routers 10.0.0.1;
    ddns-update-style interim;
    ddns-updates on;
    ignore client-updates;
    default-lease-time 259200; # 3 days
    max-lease-time 604800; # 1 week
    authoritative ;
    subnet 10.0.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
    range dynamic-bootp 10.10.10.2 10.10.10.100;
    }
    host tech {
    hardware ethernet <mac addr of tech>;
    fixed-address 10.0.0.235;
    }

    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> (0.0.0.0).
    ** 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:

    Code:
    zone 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa. &#123;
            primary 192.168.1.1;
    &#125;
    zone bits-n-pieces.co.uk. &#123;
            primary 192.168.1.1;
    &#125;
    The rest of it looks pretty similar to mine tho
