Ip helper



  • Hi everyone I'm looking for something like IP HELPER.  My understanding is its used to direct broadcasts to a specific machine on another subnet that it wouldnt otherwise get to.

    pfsense have this functionality?

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the dhcp forum as I understand that its used mostly for this purpose.



  • Would DHCP Relay match your needs?



  • I would like this too, for OS X NetBoot.
