Add the DHCP Relay Agent

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To add the DHCP Relay Agent

  1. Open Routing and Remote Access.

  2. In the console tree, click General.


    • Routing and Remote Access/server name/IP Routing/General
  3. Right-click General, and then click New Routing Protocol.

  4. In the Select Routing Protocol dialog box, click DHCP Relay Agent, and then click OK.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group. As a security best practice, consider using the Run As command rather than logging on with administrative credentials. If you have logged on with administrative credentials, you can also open Routing and Remote Access by clicking Start, clicking Control Panel, double-clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Routing and Remote Access. For more information, see Default local groups, Default groups, and Using Run as.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
