DHCP over WAN

By MAC2001 ·
I have several locations with PCs. The remote locations are connected with fractional T1 and Cisco routers. I have one centralized server location running Windows 2000 server. The remote locations need to communicate back to the centralized location. I run static IPs. How would I setup DHCP so that the remote locations could request & receive IPs?

You have to enable DHCP Forwarding on the routers to allow clients to get DHCP requests.

You can use DHPC Relay agent for DHCP client on client network server . DHCP relay agetn server must have configure connect DHCP server and have DHCP server ip adress.

Hope this helps..!

Create your scope on the windows 2000 server centrally as normal - typically one per site.

Reconfigure your router at the remote site as follows

Conf t
ip helper-address x.x.x.x

Where x.x.x.x is the ip address of your DHCP server.

Save the config and Bob's your aunty.

Good luck
