dhcp snooping

Last Modified: 2017-11-02

I am playing around with DHCP Snooping on a switch before I deploy the config out. I have a very simple lab. Router that provides DHCP to a switch with a host on it. I enabled DHCP snooping on my vlan and on the switch

IT_SWITCH#sh run | i snooping
ip dhcp snooping vlan 1
ip dhcp snooping

Open in new window

No trusted ports have been configured on any port even the trunk to the router so technically, I shouldn't get DHCP IP address to my host? Correct? If so, I am. Am I doing something wring? No trusted port was configured so I should not get dhcp
