In normal situations, a PC can access the Internet after obtaining an IP address through DHCP. However, if the IP address is assigned by a bogus DHCP server, the PC cannot access the Internet with the bogus IP address. If this problem occurs, you are advised to configure DHCP snooping on the Layer 2 access device or first DHCP relay agent from the device, to ensure that PCs can obtain correct IP addresses.

  • When you configure DHCP snooping on a Layer 2 access device, steps 1, 2, and 3 are mandatory and must be performed in sequence.

  • When you configure DHCP snooping on a DHCP relay agent, only steps 1 and 2 are required.

  1. Enable DHCP snooping globally.

    <HUAWEI> system-view
    [HUAWEI] dhcp enable
    [HUAWEI] dhcp snooping enable
  2. Configure the interfaces connected to DHCP clients. Perform the configuration on all interfaces connected to DHCP clients. GE0/0/1 is used as an example.

    [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1
    [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] dhcp snooping enable
    [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1] quit
  3. Perform the configuration on interfaces connected to the DHCP server. GE0/0/2 is used as an example.

    [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet 0/0/2
    [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/2] dhcp snooping trusted
    [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/2] quit
