no address range available for DHCP request via eth
The messages log file reports a lot of lines like:
Dec 22 14:27:53 ns dnsmasq-dhcp: no address range available for DHCP request via eth1
eth1 is a blue interface, dhcp is disabled on blue but enabled on green, devices connected to blue network request an ip address via dhcp: the above lines gets logged.
Workaround: enable dhcp on blue.
Possible fix: drop dhcp requests on blue

To drop dhcp requests on interfaces where dhcp is not enabled we need to remove the dhcp option from shorewall interfaces.
/etc/e-smith/templates/etc/shorewall/interfaces/20nics the dhcp option should be subject to service status.
