forward-snooped-clients (DHCP Relay Agent)


Hierarchy Level


Configure how DHCP relay agent filters and handles DHCP snooped packets on the specified interfaces. The router or switch determines the DHCP snooping action to perform based on a combination of the forward-snooped-clients configuration and the configuration of either the allow-snooped-clients statement or the no-allow-snooped-clients statement.

The router (or switch) also uses this statement to determine how to handle snooped BOOTREPLY packets received on non-configured interfaces.


all-interfaces—Perform the action on all interfaces.

  • Default: On EX Series switches, the action is performed on all interfaces by default.

configured-interfaces—Perform the action only on interfaces that are configured as part of an interface group.

non-configured-interfaces—Perform the action only on interfaces that are not part of a group.

Required Privilege Level

interface—To view this statement in the configuration.
