Hi Guys,

Nortel don’t support the IP Helper command. I used to run Nortel 5510’s and from the command line you can set up a DHCP forwarder. This will forward all the protocols you need.

1/ Enable DHCP for the client VLAN using the following command lines:

# config vlan1 ip
# dhcp enable

2/ Configure IP helpers to forward DHCP requests from the workstation subnet to the Proxy DHCP server, using the following command lines:

# config ip dhcp-relay
# create 10.0.0.1 10.1.1.2 mode dhcp state enable
# create 10.0.0.1 196.10.229.2 mode dhcp state enable

The create command has the form create agent server mode dhcp state enable, where agent is the IP address of the gateway that serves the PXE workstation, and server is the IP address of the server that the DHCP frame should be forwarded to.

3/ Save the configuration

If you are using Accel with site manager its possible from the GUI but you should talk to a Nortel expert if you are messing with this. There is some good info on the net on setting this up.

Cheers,
