DHCP on 2 LAN segments

Hi Guys,

Just need to know if possible how to setup DHCP for 2 LAN segments when the DHCP server is installed on only one of the LAN segments.

Example:

10.0.1.0/24 DHCP is on this segment

10.0.3.0/24 This segment has no DHCP server but i want to know if there is a way to allow the DHCP server on 10.0.1.0/24 to work on 10.0.3.0/24.

Not sure if i need to setup a DHCP relay agent to get this done.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

It is possible, but it is the job of the router to redirect these broadcasts and the DHCP server needs to know what networks it is assigning addresses to.  What is your reason for doing it this way?

You do need the relay agent.

Yeah OK that makes sense that this needs to happen.

I'm doing because we have a secondary location with a few devices that has its own subnet
