DHCP Snooping VLAN Configuration

Use the DHCP Snooping VLAN Configuration page to view and configure the DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) snooping settings on VLANs that exist on the device. DHCP snooping can be configured on switching VLANs and routing VLANs. For Layer 2 (non-routing) VLANs, DHCP snooping forwards valid DHCP client messages received on the VLANs. The message is forwarded on all trusted interfaces in the VLAN. When a DHCP packet is received on a routing VLAN, the DHCP snooping application applies its filtering rules and updates the bindings database. If a client message passes filtering rules, the message is placed into the software forwarding path, where it may be processed by the DHCP relay agent, the local DHCP server, or forwarded as an IP packet.
