    Release Information

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Mobility Release 11.2W.


    Configure the address assignment option so that the IP subnet returned by the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is used by the broadband gateway when it assigns IP addresses for subscribers. If this option is configured, then you must configure a DHCP (IPv4 or IPv6) proxy client profile on the broadband gateway. The broadband gateway uses the information configured in the DHCP proxy client profile to obtain the IP subnet returned by the DHCP server.

    The remaining statements are explained separately.


    If you omit the dhcp-proxy-client statement, the default address assignment option is local. This means that the IP addresses are assigned by the broadband gateway using the mobile pool or mobile pool group configured on the APN. If a mobile pool or a mobile pool group is not specified, then the default mobile pool is used to assign the IP address. The default mobile pool is configured on the routing instance that is associated with the mobile interface of the APN.
