Hierarchy Level


Add the suboptions link-selection and server-id override to option-82 information for DHCP packets relayed to the server.

In network configurations where a firewall on the broadband network gateway (BNG) is between the DHCPv4 relay agent and the DHCP server, only the BNG loopback address passes through the BNG firewall. In that case, DHCP unicast packets do not pass through the firewall and and discarded. To enable DHCP unicast packets to pass through the BNG firewall, use the relay-source configuration statement to configure the DHCP relay agent to use the loopback address as the source address in IP headers and DHCP messages. In this case, this configuration statement adds the link-selection suboption to provide the DHCP server information to locate the correct address pool for the DHCP client and adds the server-id override suboption to set the server ID option.
