For that we have to create two different DHCP POOL. one for network and another for network


Router(config)#ip dhcp pool one






Router(config)#ip dhcp pool three






Step3:Now go to Router1 and Gi0/1 interface and run the below code.

Router(config)#int g0/1

Router(config-if)#ip helper-address


Step4:Now go to PC1 and select DHCP option and you will see the below output.dhcp client packet tracer

it’s output will tell everything about your configuration.

If you see the ip address same then you have configured your DHCP server correctly.

If not then you need to Troubleshoot.Something wrong has been configured by you.
First check the ip address you have assigned correctly or not.
Then check whether you have mentioned ip helping address on second router or not.


Step5:If you want to see the ip address of client along with their Mac Addresses type below command on your Router.


Router#show ip dhcp binding

IP address Client-ID/ Lease expiration Type
