This might be the basic Idea and extremely sorry if that was asked earlier. Since I am novice and just starting setting up Ruckus would like to know how do I setup Ruckus with external DHCP server. I have AP7362, ZD 1106

Hi Blason,

You can configure an external DHCP server with the Ruckus WLAN system . See the basic topology diagram below.

Client will get the VLAN information from WLAN and send the DHCP discovery through the DS . The DHCP server connected in the same network will respond to the discovery massages and complete the DHCP process.

Please note that if the DHCP is in a different subnet , you would need to configure the DHCP proxy on the switch or the router .

ah yeah thanks for your help dude..This is just a basic topology that I am following and wondering how wifi devices will be able to reach to LAN connected DHCP server.

What if the APs dispersed geographically?

Hi Blason,

If the AP is connected to a remote site , by default it will keep the client traffic on local site . Client will still get the IP address from the local DHCP server . See the diagram Image_ images_messages_5f91c419135b77e247964ae7_42d683ffa1eb1bd550d4f50a9ca28fbb_Untitled_inline-47c290eb-43b0-4402-bab8-3df70e55da2b-571578292.jpg1422469648
