I want to configure dnsmasq to issue IP addresses in various ranges 
based on client type or location.

I have an entire /24 for my network, and want to keep it that way, 
however, I want to specify clients IP addresses based on various chriteria.

server systems should recieve an IP address in the range of, 
and known wired and wireless clients (trusted laptops and workstations) 
in the range of  Finally, any un-known client should be 
issued an IP address in the range  as this is largely an 
organizational tool, and these systems are all in the same physical 
network, I want them to all be given their address in the 
subnet, and know that as their broadcast domain.

the question is, will dnsmasq let me configure it in this fassion?  I'm 
fine with entering servers and trusted workstations manually.

also, if anyone knows, will shorewall match IP addresses masked in that 
fassion as well?, when the interface is a /24..
