Re: directing DHCP requests on a 3548 .....

Hi,

IMHO, this won't work.

ip helper command is used on routed ports to forward DHCP broadcasts to another subnet, e.g.

Cat3548 is a L2 device not providing such a functionality.

I think that even while you are able to configure ip helper address on int VLAN1 it will not do anything.
