which also has access to one or more VPNs. If one DHCP server wishes
to offer service to DHCP clients on those different VPNs the DHCP
server needs to know the VPN on which each client resides. The vpn-

passes on to the DHCP server, and is also used to properly forward
any DHCP reply that the DHCP server sends back to the relay agent.
