DHCP multi scope

Hi all,
I'm searching a way to configure the DHCP on Firebox that is able to recognize the type of device that requests an IP based on tipology of device.

This because I want to use HTTPS Inspection on PC/MAC and not for mobile devices.
I see that Windows PCs provide the option 60 (VCI) = MSFT 5.0 in the Request.
Other devices like Smatphone don't provide this info and devices like Tablet provide option 60 (VCI) = android-dhcp-13.

I would like to avoid to create different access ie SSID for mobile and SSID for PC.

Can someone have a suggestion?

    Hello @Arcipelago-IT You'll need to use an external DHCP server for this -- the firebox is only intended to be a basic DHCP server, and will only hand out addresses from a single pool. The firebox can act as a DHCP Relay and pass that information on to another server (like a Microsoft Windows DHCP server, or a Linux server running dhcpd.
