    LNM Quirks

    So what interesting "features" have you found with LNM?

    The first one I have found is during setup where it want's me to specify IP addresses for the DHCP scope. I just ran the installer on a spare machine to see what it's like, I left it with the defult DHCP settings it came up with:

    Start IP: 192.168.0.50
    End IP: 192.168.0.254

    Then when I press next it says that the End IP must be higher than the Start IP!

    Changed the Start to 192.168.0.10 and the end to 192.168.0.200 and it works, maybe it's only validating the IP address by the 1st digit in the fourth octet?

    Could it actually be validating the final 50 as 500, so the 50 should 050? Being overly clever, or overly stupid.

    Possibly its doing an ASCII compare. "50" is > "254" whereas "10" < "200".

    I spotted that - went "oh!" and duly changed the range to 10.0.0.50 -> 10.0.0.99

    It's the bloody message at the end that's pissing me off!

    Yeah, we had an issue with the IP settings, it didn't like our subnet mask of 255.255.252.0!

    I found this Rob I could only get it to use a 24 bit subnet, would not recognise our 22 bit mask, like yours.
