Before configuring a firewall interface as a DHCP client,
make sure you have configured a Layer 3 Ethernet or Layer 3 VLAN
interface and that you assigned the interface to a virtual router
and a zone. Perform this task if you need to use DHCP to request
an IPv4 address for an interface on your firewall.
DHCP Client Settings
to configure the interface as
a DHCP client.
Automatically create default route pointing
to default gateway provided by server
Causes the firewall to create a static route
to a default gateway that will be useful when clients are trying
to access many destinations that do not need to have routes maintained
in a routing table on the firewall.
Default Route Metric
Optionally, enter a
(priority level) for the route between the firewall
and the DHCP server. A route with a lower number has higher priority
during route selection. For example, a route with a metric of 10
is used before a route with a metric of 100 (range is 1-65535; no default).
Show DHCP Client Runtime Info
Displays all settings received from the
DHCP server, including DHCP lease status, dynamic IP assignment, subnet
mask, gateway, and server settings (DNS, NTP, domain, WINS, NIS,
POP3, and SMTP).
