    Release Information

    Statement introduced before Junos OS Release 7.4.

    Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

    Description

    Enable TFTP or DNS request packet forwarding, or configure the router, switch, or interface to act as a DHCP/BOOTP relay agent. Use only one server address per interface or global configuration.

    You can also use the helpers port statement to enable forwarding LAN broadcast traffic on custom UDP ports to particular servers as unicast traffic. Configure the UDP port number and optionally an interface on which to listen for broadcast traffic, and the destination server address to receive that traffic, as shown in either of the following sample configurations:

    user@ host# show forwarding-options
    helpers {port 1200 {server 10.20.30.40;}}
    user@ host# show forwarding-options
    helpers {port 3000 {interface {fe-0/0/1.0 {server 192.0.2.2;}}}port 3001 {interface {fe-0/0/0.0 {server 192.0.2.2;}}}}

    The remaining statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
