C2950 and the command ip dhcp-server and ip helper-address x.x.x.x

Unanswered Question
Aug 14th, 2008

I have external site that are connected via C2950 to my Core. On those site I have DHCP server that I want to remove. Can I use layer 2 switch to forward ip address? (I tough that NO, but after reading some post I'm not sure anymore!!!)

the only command available are like the one posted below. Can someone help me out.

Do I need to upgrade the ios to see the ip helper-address.

I'm running version:


Use the ip dhcp-server if you are setting up the switch to be used as a DHCP server.

On the VLAN interface, use "ip helper-address x.x.x.x" with the IP of the DHCP server.

Let me know if I'm incorrect here!


I have this problem too.

You have posted the same question in the LAN Switching and Routing forum where I have posted a response. I suggest that any further discussion be consolidated in the LAN forum.
