Dec 12th, 2007

Hi All Experts!

Need help to configure DHCP!



Switchport 1 accessed

Address attched DHCP Server with address

VLAN 12.

Switchport 2 accessed

Address attached a PC with address

I've changed Configuration as following:


ip helper-address

DHCP is configured to reserve ip address to PC based on PC's MAC

problems are:

- PC cannot receive IP Address!!!.

- When I Asign static IP address to PC, I can ping DHCP server ( successfully.

Can you tell me why and how to config the switch.

DHCP server can asign address to PC.

I'm just a newbie!

Thanks all!

This sounds more like a DHCP server issue than a switch issue. If you can statically assign an IP address to the PC and then ping the DHCP server it sounds like routing etc. is working.

Can you send switch config.

Also, which type of DHCP server are you using and are there any logs that would point to what is going on.
