Let me clarify. I have a static, public, address which I pay through
the nose for from my ISP (comcast). The DHCP server that I've been
talking about is my router/NAT device/cable modem provided by comcast.
It assigns things for my local, private, network.
I was just concerned about the assignment of *private* addresses in
10.1.10.0/24. NATing will ensure that what leaves my network comes from
my properly assigned public IP address.
My router from comcast has its own DHCP server on it. I have limited
control over it. But I can (and have) specified the range of the
dynamic pool. So the internal machines that I am assigning statically
to private addresses are private addresses outside of the dynamic pool
I hope this answers your concern. I am *not* trying to claim an IP
address to which I'm not routed for.
