Sending DHCP Options to the JunosE Router

 

Subscriber classification scripts support DHCP options conveyed through COPS. When COPS reports an address, the JunosE router sends DHCP options received for DHCP requests for that address. The DHCP options are available in the subscriber classification context for selecting the subscriber profile to load.

The fields in Table 6 are in the classification context of subscriber classification scripts.
