BOOTP/DHCP Relay, described in RFC 951, enables a host to use a BOOTP or DHCP server to obtain basic TCP/IP configuration information even if the servers are not on the local subnet. When an Ascend unit configured for BOOTP/DHCP Relay receives packets destined for a BOOTP or DHCP server, it forwards them to specific servers as defined in the Ascend unit's configuration. Similarly, the Ascend unit forwards packets received from BOOTP or DHCP servers to the appropriate clients. The Ascend unit only relays these packets; it doesn't perform any action on them.


(See BOOTP and DHCP spoofing for more information.)
