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
Select DHCP Client and then Enable 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 Default Route Metric (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).
