Fake AP with netmask /16


Recommended Posts


I want to activate my lab test FAKE AP, but I have a trouble:

My defaul network and my firewall have subnet with netmask

I need to setup fake AP and dhcpd.conf on subnet with netmask

but when try to start dhcp I have an error

Someone can help me?

Well, obviously. If you place the mask over the IP then both networks end up as so you should either accept that you don't get a /16 or have one of the two use a different subnet.

Easiest is to use / for the one and / for the other.

If you really must stay within 172.16 you can't have both networks as /16 but /15 is possible. For that you should configure things as / for the one and /
