We have had all static IPs in the past. To ease the "user experience" during a VPN implementation, we would like to have certain users obtain IP info with DHCP. Do I need a seperate DHCP server for the subnets? I have three subnet that are on the other side of Netware 4.11 servers acting as routers. For users on the main backbone network, 172.20.x.x, I have DHCP enabled on a Cisco 4006 switch and it works great.

You can create different scopes for each subnet....on the same DHCP server. The catalyst 4006 can be configured with 3 more pools for each subnet. But the Novell servers acting as routers, should be configured as DHCP relay, for those subnets behind them
