Hi All,

I have FWSM (version 6.1(2)F) on 6513 core switch. It's configured in routed mode without natting. I have enabled DHCP relay on it and it's working fine but I need to enable BOOTP also so I want to know if dhcp and bootp can work together or not?

please find below the configuration of the dhcp on the FWSM:

dhcprelay server Server
dhcprelay enable Vlan1
dhcprelay enable Vlan2
dhcprelay enable Vlan3
dhcprelay enable Vlan4
dhcprelay enable Vlan5
dhcprelay enable Vlan6
dhcprelay enable Vlan7

FWSM# sh dhcprelay statistics
DHCP UDP Unreachable Errors: 107
DHCP Other UDP Errors: 0

Packets Relayed
BOOTREQUEST          33
DHCPDISCOVER         210195
DHCPREQUEST          43108
DHCPDECLINE          5
DHCPRELEASE          71
DHCPINFORM           83200

BOOTREPLY            0
DHCPOFFER            9431
DHCPACK              88705
DHCPNAK              176

Thanks in advance
