hi all, i have a 2821 router with 4ESW HWIC installed. we have some vendors sitting in our dept so we seperated there switch and connected an uplink on HWIC's port and created a seperate vlan 4 and assigend that port to vlan 4. given ip in interface vlan 4 everything was fine. they have one user who is having problem in connecting to one of our subnets server. Our subnet is and their subnet is at first i thought ip helper command will be sufficient but it didnt work at all. consider my server to be and the vendors have confirmed that they use broadcast to connect to our server ( they used some complex terms which i dont know anyway :-) ). Now do i have to define the specific UDP port through forwarding address command or anything else i need to do ?

Configure "ip forward-protocol udp " where is the protocol you need to be forwarded by the helper.
