interesting traffic issue

I would configure the DHCP pool on the ASA instead of the switch.

Here is the config guide on configuring DHCP server on ASA:

Hi Bro

I don't see any problem with what you're doing. Can you paste your SW and FW config here, so that the others can also assist you. I believe as long as you have the lines shown below in your SW, all should be good.


ip dhcp excluded-address


ip dhcp pool TEST





Just a quick question, if you were to put a fixed IP on a PC that's connected to the SW, can this PC go out to the Internet via the SW and FW?
