DHCPv4 Relay per Interface VPN ID Support
In a Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) virtual private network (VPN) environment, a relay agent can reside in a network element that also has access to one or more MPLS VPNs. A DHCP server that provides service to DHCP clients on those different VPNs must locate the VPN in which each client resides. The network element that contains the relay agent typically captures the VPN association of the DHCP client and includes this information in the relay agent information option of the DHCP packet.
The DHCPv4 Relay per Interface VPN ID Support feature allows the Cisco IOS DHCP Relay Agent to be configured per interface to override the global configuration of the ip dhcp relay information option vpn command. This feature allows subscribers with different relay information option VPN ID requirements on different interfaces to be reached from one Cisco router.
Configuration information is included in the "Configuring the Cisco IOS Relay Agent" module in the Cisco IOS IP Addressing Services Configuration Guide, Release 12.4T, at the following URL:
