Relay DHCP packets

Specifies whether DHCP messages are relayed between DHCP clients on the subnet to which this interface is attached and DHCP servers.

After you select this check box, you must configure the DHCP server addresses in the DHCP Relay Agent Propertiesdialog box.

Hop-count threshold

The maximum number of DHCP relay agents that will handle DHCP relayed traffic. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 4 hops. The maximum value is 16 hops.

Boot threshold (seconds)

The number of seconds the relay agent waits before forwarding DHCP messages. You can also click the arrows to select a new setting. The default value is 4 seconds.

This option is useful when you want a local DHCP server to respond first, but if the local DHCP server does not respond, you want to forward messages to a remote DHCP server.
