My question involves how you should handle a single DHCP server for a multihop network: (in our case) you have one DHCP server and a network with a "row" of routers attached to each other (and only one router attached to the DHCP server). We already looked around but only found some information one a situation like in the picture http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/iseries/v5r3/topic/rzakg/rzakg502.gif. (We are not using the iSeries DHCP Server, I'm just using the picture as an example)
So, this situation is with one router; but would it be possible to have a whole network of routers (which are DCHP enabled) behind that first router and still have DHCP working right? And if this is possible, how would the DHCP server know to which subnet it should send its respond (e.g. how would the packet look, ...)?
Many thanks in advance,
