going thru the router for dhcp? Needs to be configured as a dhcp forwarder.

I think the simplest solution is to connect your DHCP server inside your LAN because like said above your router will not pass DHCP packets unless configured to do so but then you open up a a security whole in your router. This only works unless you have multiple networks. How many networks do you have? But even then, I would setup separate DHCP servers for each network because it more secure that way but I am kinda security nut.

I checked what you said and that fixes the problem!I need to set the router as a relay agent(ip helper address) to unicast the request to the DHCP server and thats it!!!
