DHCP Server On-Demand Addres Pool


Your network has many serial links running PPP. You heard some good things about DHCP and how you can create on-demand pools using IPCP. Let’s see if it works the way you expect…


  • Configure both routers for PPP encapsulation.
  • Configure router John so router Williams receives IP address thanks to IPCP.
  • Configure router William with a DHCP pool that imports the subnet mask that it receives from router John.

  1. Hi Rene,

    Thank you for the lab,

    I have repeated the configuration, but without the dhcp pool and it still worked.

    It looks like the following lines are not necessary:

    [b]ip dhcp pool MYPOOL
    import all
    origin ipcp[/b]
