Configuring DHCP relay on Cisco

On the test, I’ll take the Cisco Catalyst 6509-E switch and configure it to forward DHCP packets to the DHCP server.
The switch is configured as L3 with assigned IP addresses in each VLAN.

Connect to the switch through the console or telnet and go to the configuration mode:

enable
configure t

Let’s assume the DHCP server address is 192.168.11.1 and we want to configure the transfer of DHCP broadcast packets to it on VLAN 100, for this we execute the commands:

interface Vlan100
ip helper-address 192.168.11.1
exit

Exit the configuration mode and save the configuration:

exit
write

Done.
