DHCP relay is the Internet Software Consortium (ISC) relay agent for DHCP packets. It is used on a subnet with DHCP clients to "relay" their requests to a subnet that has a DHCP server on it. Because DHCP packets can be broadcast, they will not be routed off of the local subnet. The DHCP relay takes care of this for the client. You will need to set the environment variable SERVERS and optionally OPTIONS in /etc/sysconfig/dhcrelay before starting the server.
