Version 7.2 software can support DHCP relaying through the use of its generic UDP Helper service. Version 8.0 and later officially supports DHCP.


Version 5.5 of their routing software supports DHCP.


The switches’ “router” function has have been handling BOOTP forwarding since around 1993. Support for the broadcast flag introduced in a maintenance release of 2.5 of their software and is in version 2.6 and later.
