Yes, depending on your environment, you can give out
legal illegal addresses (see RFC1918.)
The only question is, are the users that don't need an
Internet routable address on one subnet? That's
how the DHCP server determines what addresses
to hand out, by subnet. Unless you want to
hard-code the MAC address for all of those users.
However, you mention that you're using a proxy,
so you're essentially translating everybody to
one IP address. You could use RFC1918 addresses
for ALL of the users, no?

Subject: IP addresses
We have Class C network, and we have 400 internet users, 150 of them not
using the internet, but they are using TCP/IP applications(Oracle).
We have DHCP server running on NT 4.0, and Proxy server running on NT
4.0 for accessing the internet through ip addresses.
The problem is we are running out of IP addresses, and not all the users
using the internet, is there a way to give the oracle users illegal ip
Please can anybody help us.
