DHCP Server Config

DHCP Server Config

DHCP Server Config

I have a DHCP server config that is driving me nuts.  In short, I have DHCP working and it is handing out IP addresses, except it doesn't pass the DNS ip address so hosts cannot be found.

My network is setup thusly:

Internet  <-----> Netgear <-----> Home LAN
                                  Solaris 10  <---> Test LAN
                                                     Test Client

Basically I am using my Solaris 10 box as a router, dhcp server, etc.  DNS is currently set to the netgear router.  I have tested this configuration by manually entering the DNS IP on the client and everything works.  I just can't get DHCP to do it.

I don't know what else to post to assist but here is my dhtadm -P output:


# dhtadm -P

Thanks for any help you can provide!
