Re: dhcp boardcast question

Are you trying to setup a DHCP relay? You can add one under the IP interface.

Re: dhcp boardcast question

is there a way (expect the dhcp relay) to turn the boardcast dhcp request to unicast ?

The relay always unicasts the DHCP request to the DHCP server, if that is what you mean.  If the client and the DHCP server is on the same subnet it is a broadcast and a relay is not used...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DHCP_Relay_agent
