Does CatOS 8.x support DHCP forwarding requests?

Answered Question

Currently I got one C6509, running on CatOS 8.3(3). Under IOS, there is a statement, "ip helper-address" but couldn't find a similiar statement for CatOS.


Is there a way for me to forward DHCP request to another DHCP server (in another segment)?


Thank you.

Catos has always been the layer 2 switching side so there would be no forwarding statements there. Wherever the routing is done,whether the layer 3 msfc card if it has one or some other layer 3 device that is doing the routing for the vlans is where you would use ip helper statements .

You can login to MSFC(router) any apply the helper-address to the vlan interface.
