Run DHCP server in PIX FW

Unanswered Question
Apr 20th, 2008

I am trying to configure a pix firewall 506 E SW(6.3 (5))to run DHCP server for its inside hosts. Below is the config. For some reason, hosts say they are unable to contact the DHCP server to get leases. Any help on this is highly appreciated.

Inside interface ip is

dhcpd address

dhcpd dns

dhcpd lease 11520

dhcpd enable inside

dhcpd domian

I have this problem too.

Tell pix which interface the dhcp range will be used under.


dhcpd address inside

thanks for the quick reply. When I applied the command dhcpd enable inside, it automatically changed the command to dhcpd address inside. Will run a packet capture and see if it helps.
