DHCP Snooping

Written by Rene Molenaar on . Posted in Switching


For this lab you need REAL hardware. You can't use switches in GNS3!

You need at least a Cisco Catalyst 3550 switch for this lab.

One of your customers is being plagued by attacks on their switched infrastructure. You as a specialized switch specialist are looking for a method to counter DHCP spoofing attacks. Let's see what you can do for them...


  • Configure the IP addresses on router Attacker and DHCP as specified in the topology picture.
  • Configure DHCP server on router DHCP so it can serve the client an IP address.
  • Configure DHCP snooping globally on SW1.
  • Configure SW1 to use the correct trusted and untrusted interfaces.
  • Configure SW1 so the client is limited to 10 DHCP packets per second.
  • Configure router Attacker as a DHCP server to verify your DHCP snooping configuration.

It took me 1000s of hours reading books and doing labs, making mistakes over and over again until I mastered all the switch protocols for CCNP.

Would you like to be a master of switching too? In a short time without having to read 900 page books or google the answers to your questions and browsing through forums?

I collected all my knowledge and created a single ebook for you that has everything you need to know to become a master of switching.

You will learn all the secrets about DHCP, DHCP snooping and more.

Does this sound interesting to you? Take a look here and let me show you how to Master CCNP SWITCH


Basic IOS for the switches should be sufficient. No special features needed.
