Serving multiple VLANs with 1 DHCP server

Hi,

Is it possible for one DHCP server to serve multiple VLANS in the same
network segment with different IP subnets for each VLAN?

VLAN1: 192.168.1.0/24
VLAN2: 192.168.2.0/24
VLAN3: 192.168.3.0/24

How does it work?

Re: Serving multiple VLANs with 1 DHCP server

Hi,

Yes this is possible to perform, but you are relying on your
inter-vlan router performing a trick called dhcp forwarding.
Essentially the router will detect a DHCP request and forward it to a
configured server. The server will see the request origionating from
one of your 3 networks and reply with a valid address for the subnet.

This is not realy a function of the DHCP server, but more of your
layer 3 switch / intervlan router.

Cheers,

Steve

Please do not ask your question in multiple forums as it will dilute
your responses.
