I have a series of sites with Cisco 800 series routers to connect to head office.
These routers assign DHCP to the small number of clients in each location. We have begun a rollout of desktop management software which can also do PXE booting to image machines in the remote locations, etc..
I have put an IP HELPER-ADDRESS in one of the branch routers, but it seems that does not work (the machine does not PXE boot).
Our carrier seems to think that the client will grab a DHCP address from the router, then not try the ip helper since it already has its address.
Can someone please confirm if that is the case, or if there is something we can do to make this setup work.
Thanks in advance!
