IIRC, this isn't really a function of the DHCP server but of the
switches and routers in the middle. From my limited knowledge from the
Harold B Lee Library system, Altirus has a regular DHCP server in it
serving up requests. The switches and routers in the middle actually get
a lease from the campus DHCP server and tag on the extra information
from a lease from the Altirus server. I can't remember what the function
in the switches was. My recommendation to check and see if this is the
case would be Dan Wells in OIT or Jonathan Mecham in the Library. I
might be completely off here though. I didn't really build that system.
