DHCP ON A WAN

By marvin.gilmore ·
I have a domain that is spread across (3) geographical locations. How do I set the remote locations in the domain so that the DHCP server handles the WAN remote locations? Each location has a router which connects back to the main office router which is the gateway router to the internet.

DHCP ON A WAN

Im just curious, is there a reason for the remote lans to have IP address assigned by your DHCP server at the main location?

Where I have worked, we used a local DHCP server (either an nt server or a small router) at the remote sites.

On a Cisco router you can use the ip helper-address command on the interface that the DHCP client resides.

ex.
ip helper address 10.10.10.1

where 10.10.10.1 is the ip address of your DHCP server.

If you are not using Cisco routers then youwill need to consult your vendors documentation.
