DHCP/BOOTP forwarder

Hi,

 

I read the following posting in a Microsoft TechNet forum, a discussion about "PXE Boot with UEFI":

 

As solution to be able to use UEFI and BIOS(legacy boot) based devices I would say:
If your DHCP and WDS server are in the same subnet and your client in another one, you need to enable bootP forward to WDS and DHCP forward to DHCP server with IPhelper. Do NOT use any DHCP options (60, 66 & 67)  in DHCP. This makes the Client decide on their own which bootfile they need.

 

We use the dhcp relay command on our core switches. Is it possible to differentiate between DHCP- and BOOTP-requests as proposed in the TechNet-forum posting?
