Default DHCP server - client not seeing it?

I'm running a CentOS DHCP server on a permiter box with eth0 facing public and eth1 facing inside the LAN for a bunch of NAT'ed machines. My clients don't pick up a DHCP lease, but if I config static, they see the DHCP server interface. My dhcpd.conf shows:
ddns-update-style none;
ignore client-updates;
subnet netmask {
option routers; #local gateway
option subnet-mask; #local subnet mask
option nis-domain "domain.org";
option domain-name "domain.org"; #domain name given to client
option domain-name-servers;
option time-offset -18000; # Eastern Standard Time
default-lease-time 21600;
max-lease-time 43200;
host ns {
next-server ns1.cox.net;
hardware ethernet 12:34:56:78:AB:CD;
my ifcfg-eth1 shows:
I've added a route of:
route add -host dev eth1
when I tail -f /var/lib/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases I don't see anything when the other box is trying to negotiate. My firewall is disabled (for troubleshooting this part). Do I need to do something with the GATEWAYDEV in ifcfg-eth1?
