DHCP Capabilities for Bridged Connection?

Is there any way to have DHCP for a bridge connection on the external/secondary

facility. How would I go about doing that?

I would like to know if there is a way I can implement DHCP for a bridged connection.

I don't want to have to assign static IP's for all the hosts located in the outside building.

So you have a bridge connection connecting 2 buildings, readin between the lines here.. If so, yes you can use DHCP over a bridge link.

Yes, I have a bridge between two buildings.

Do I have to implement a designated dhcp server,

or how would I go about doing that? The devices I'm using are

a Cisco 1310 bridge as root and a Cisco 1131 AP on the other location.

Do you have multiple vlans ot just one ?

Simply put a DHCP server on wired side VLAN or (helper) and point it to a DHCP server.

I have a few vlans. Please bare with me, I have not configured a bridged connection before.

Do you happen to know how or any links I can follow in order to set dhcp up. I have a

dhcp server. So far, I'm able to connect a device on the outside building via static IP. I have yet to connect

the dhcp server to it.

You have a 1310 which is your root and this is connected to the wired. The 1310 is connected to the swicth fabric via a TRUNK. This trunk breaks out into multple vlans. You need to add helpers on these vlans pointing to your DHCP server.

Keep in mind the helper will happen on your wired side. The links above will show you a general config but they dont talk specifics about DHCP. Again, put the helper on the wired.
