Dear maxalarie,

that depends upon the on the IP segment defined on your network switches and/or IP helper address for your network.
Those you IP network experts can tell you.

Kind regards,
As mentioned, it depends on how your network is setup.
If you are running a router and the interface is setup to accept traffic from your network range of the IP range from your scope (maybe a vlan) then the router will know what interface the DHCP request came from and with help from the helper-address will point the traffic to the DHCP server and route it back to the same interface.
ensure the router interface has an ip address of (for example) and make your DHCP settings have it's client settings use this as it's default gateway.
This is fairly simple suggestion as you haven't specified how your network has been setup.
Can you give more information on your network setup?
