[Dnsmasq-discuss] DHCP assignment with dynamic VLANs

Thank you Michael for you answer, even if it's bad news for me :\

I was looking also at ISC dhcrelay, but I don't know if it suits my 
idea: I have to distinguish which dhcp pool has to be used based on 
which host is asking for it (for example using his MAC address). Instead 
it seems to me that dhcrelay makes DHCP messages relayed based on the 
interface where they're received, which in my case will always be the 
same (br-lan).

My goal is something like:
use br-lan for "accepting" the user and then "put" him in his /30 VLAN.

Do you personally think there is any solution to this?
