dhcp across vlans

Unanswered Question
Apr 5th, 2008

Hi all, can anyone tell me how come that if the dhcp server is sent a request from one of my vlans, and this comes from the vlan L3 interface, how come the dhcp server knows what scope to give out?

I have this problem too.

It is going to use the source address subnet of u r SVI and according to it is going to assign the IP.

It adds whar is call a GADDR (gateway address) to the packet which is what the DHCP server looks for the appropriate subnet.
