I have a Cisco 3550 Switch (with an EMI) image. I seem to be stuck trying to figure out if the switch has a possibility of setting IP addresses (i thought Layer 3 switches could do that). I want to set up a vlan for specific ports in my lab and then use the switch to relay DHCP requests out a specific port.
FA 0/1 --- I want to be the default port / thing everything communicates between the router (not using a cisco router right now so i cannot set up a trunk port etc)
I want Fa0/23 to be configured to get DHCP address from router through fa0/1 (will my switch know that? or time out? It seems to take longer than if i plugged directly into the back of my router.
