service dhcp-server listento interface <dp-interface>

Allows the DHCP server to create address pools for clients that are indirectly connected to a data plane network interface through a DHCP relay server.

set service dhcp-server listento interface dp-interface
delete service dhcp-server listento interface
show service dhcp-server
dp-interface
A data plane interface on the router. It must have a valid IP address.

Configuration mode.


service {
   dhcp-server {
      listento {
         interface dp-interface
      }
   }
}

Use this command to enable the DHCP server to create IP address pools for clients that are not directly connected to the router. For example, if clients on B subnet connect to the router through a DHCP relay server, the DHCP relay server connects to the router through a data plane interface on the A subnet, and the data plane interface has a valid IP address, using this command allows the DHCP server to create IP address pools for clients that are on the B subnet.

Use the set form of this command to create an IP address pool for clients that are indirectly connected to the router through a data plane network interface.

Use the delete form of this command to remove a data plane interface from the DHCP server configuration. If no data plane interfaces are configured, the DHCP server cannot create address pools.

Use the show form of this command to view the DHCP server configuration.
