Now you can enter the IP address(es) of your remote DHCP ser ver(s), such as might be located in your 
company’s corporate headquar ters. Each time you enter an IP address and press Return, an additional field 
appears. You can enter up to four DHCP ser ver addresses.
In the example above, DHCP requests from clients on the LAN will be relayed to the DHCP ser vers at IP 
addresses,,, and
Note: The remote DHCP ser ver(s) to which the Netopia Router is relaying DHCP requests must be capable of 
ser vicing relayed requests. Not all DHCP ser vers suppor t this feature. For example, the DHCP ser ver in the 
Netopia Router does not.
The DHCP ser ver(s) to which the Netopia Router is relaying DHCP requests must be configured with one or more 
address pools that are within the Netopia Router’s primar y Ethernet LAN subnet. (There is no mechanism for 
DHCP clients to receive an address on a secondar y subnet via a relayed DHCP request.)
Connection Profiles
Since you will probably only have a single connection to your ISP over the DSL link, you may not need to create 
multiple connection profiles. Additional profiles may be useful for creating VPNs.
Connection Profiles define the line and networking protocols necessar y for the gateway to make a remote 
connection. A connection profile is like an address book entr y describing how the gateway is to get to a remote 
site, or how to recognize and authenticate a remote user connecting to the gateway. To create a new 
Connection Profile, you navigate to the WAN Configuration screen from the Main Menu, and select Add 
Connection Profile.
