I'm having an issue with my laptop not being able to get an I.P from a DHCP server. The DHCP client and server are in different subnets and am usign the I.P helper-address command but still not helping.
VLAN 1 = 10.152.0.0/24
VLAN 2 = 10.152.1.224/27
DHCP Server = 10.152.0.102/24
My PC is connected to switch (access port / vlan 2) which is then connected to Router on vlan 2 interface . I.P address on the Router 2's VLAN 2 Interface is 10.152.1.254 and this will be the gateway of all the DHCP clients in vlan 2 subnet. In the DHCP server file, I specify the I.P address for my Laptop to be 10.152.1.246/27.
Since DHCP client (my laptop) and DHCP server are in different subnet, I issued the command of "ip helper-address 10.152.0.102" on vlan 2 interface of the router. But am not getting the I.P address at all. Default Gateway on switch is set to 10.152.0.126 (which is the Router 1 vlan 1 I.P address) but I don't think that maybe an issue. Rest, traffic from other PC's in the vlan 1 subnet range is just fine and getting the I.P's from DHCP server but its just the vlan 2 interfaces not being able to get the I.P address. Can you please suggest what maybe wrong ?
