I suspect that you can get something to work. The r00ter provides:
- A DHCP daemon with some static leases. Some hosts get a different
default route or static IP.
- A DNS daemon that also fronts the pseudo-TLD ".noise". dnsmasq on
r00ter is pulling out name/IP combos from /etc/hosts to populate the
zone. These are to serve names for statically-addressed things (e.g.
"pony.noise" points to 172.30.0.30)
- 1-to-1 NAT mappings and some port forwardings for Sonic.net static
IPs that forward into things like MC Hawking.
- QoS classification and queuing for both inbound *and* outbound traffic.
