Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

A DHCP server and a BOOTP server may reside on the same network segment. The BOOTP server assigns static IP addresses to BOOTP clients. As defined in the DHCP protocol, a DHCP server can also respond to BOOTP requests to assign IP addresses to BOOTP clients. BOOTP clients may obtain IP addresses from the DHCP server but not the BOOTP server.


DHCP has been enabled globally using the dhcp enable command in the system view.

Follow-up Procedure

Using the dhcp server bootp automatic command in the system view, you can enable the DHCP server to allocate IP addresses to BOOTP clients.


# Enable a DHCP server to respond to a BOOTP request.
