NS5GT Transparent mode & DHCP



  • Hi,

    My ISP provides me with 5 DHCP addresses (no static) so I’m trying to configure my 5GT in Transparent mode. The problem is that clients on the trusted side are unable to get an IP address from my ISP. I have tried to add my ISP’s DHCP-server as a relay but with no luck.

    If I configure the 5GT in NAT mode everthing works fine.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated/Tommy



  • DHCP uses a broadcast ip addres, this can only be forwarded if you have a dhcp_relay configured. I am not sure you can do that in transparent mode.

    Maybe all you need is a default route for your netscreen’s vlan1 interface/

    Chrs,



  • Do you have an policy that allows DHCP requests?
