Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

DHCP is developed based on the BOOTP protocol. The device supports both DHCP and BOOTP and allows hosts to obtain IP addresses by BOOTP.

To enable an interface to obtain IP addresses using BOOTP, you can enable the BOOTP client function on the interface. A BOOTP client requests for an IP address from the server using BOOTP. The BOOTP client has two functions:
  • Sends BOOTP Request messages to the server.
  • Processes BOOTP Reply messages from the server.

To obtain an IP address, the BOOTP client sends a BOOTP Request message to the server. When the server receives the BOOTP Request message, it sends a BOOTP response message to the BOOTP client. The BOOTP client obtains the assigned IP address from the response message.


# Enable the BOOTP client function on VLANIF100 to obtain an IP address.
