Can anyone give me some tips or point me to some documentation on setting up a catalyst 4500 series w vlans and a windows 2003 server w associated dhcp scopes? Just for curiosity, what is a good vlan design for a college. I was thinking a student, a staff, a faculty, and a guest and or mgmt vlan. Also, on the guest vlan how would I setup an outbound acl to only allow port 80 traffic? Thanks in advance.
Yes you will need an ip helper-address on each client vlan pointing to the DHCP server.
The router knows the interface the DHCP request came in on so when it turns the broadcast from the client into a unicast to the DHCP server it uses the IP address of the vlan interface it came in on.
