DHCP server custom configuration

dhcp

#1

Hello, been using this on my local network for years.

I now have this on a VPS, I would like to allow the DHCP server to cater for 12000 - 20000 daily users.

What IP range should I use and where do I make that particular edit?
A step by step guide would be fantastic :slight_smile:


How do I use Pi-hole's built in DHCP server (and why would I want to)?

You can use this as a reference (for subnet settings)

(for 32768 unique IPs you would need a /17 )

Once you have the router set-up to support that subnet, you would set the parameters in /etc/dnsmasq.d/02-pihole-dhcp.conf or via the admin interface.

But before you do that, are you sure your hardware will handle all that ?

That’s a hell of a huge load, close to ISP grade and it will require some serious firepower to handle all that, in real time, without any delay (one one branch).

I am not running this on a Raspberry Pi :stuck_out_tongue:

PS: Thanks so much for the help! – /etc/dnsmasq.d/02-pihole-dhcp.conf is what I was looking for!
