DHCP Snooping Dynamic Bindings

Use the DHCP Snooping Dynamic Bindings page to view and clear dynamic bindings in the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) snooping bindings database. The DHCP snooping feature uses DHCP messages to build and maintain the bindings database. The bindings database includes data for clients only on untrusted ports. DHCP snooping creates a tentative binding from DHCP DISCOVER and REQUEST messages. Tentative bindings tie a client to an interface (the interface where the DHCP client message was received). Tentative bindings are completed when DHCP snooping learns the client's IP address from a DHCP ACK message on a trusted port. DHCP snooping removes bindings in response to DECLINE, RELEASE, and NACK messages. The DHCP snooping feature ignores the ACK messages as a reply to the DHCP Inform messages received on trusted ports.
