Hi Johan,

thanks for the reply.

we eventually found the problem. the MS DHCP server sends its informs and offers to its default gateway. in this case the default gateway was the firewall (Juniper SSG).
On this model of FW you need to allow DHCP relay, this was not the case.

our switch was working and doing the relay as it was supposed to do, but the firewall blocked the traffic from ever reaching the client. the allow any any we set up on this firewall for testing was not enough since it is a little checkbox on the SSG which you need to enable.

thanks for the time

grtz
Yves
