Networking: DHCP Relay over VPN tunnel

Customers uses more and more central DHCP servers therefore we need to extend the DHCP-Relay option to also support forwarding the relay requests via an established Site-to-Site tunnel. Support a centralzied DHCP configuration scenario

        Hi, is this possible now? I'm trying to setup dhcp relay via Site-to-Site (IPSec) but it doesn't work.

        Client->ASG====S2S=====ASG->DHCP server

        sinve v8.0, IPsec is not bound to separate ipsecX interfaces any more. It´s just bound to the physical ethX device where the tunnel ends.
        So you can simply use your LAN and your WAN interface in the DHCP Relay configuration to enable dhcp relaying over the VPN tunnel. Successfully tested with 8.102..

        we too are planning to roll out the ASGs to our branch offices and migrate from our managed mpls networks. The ASGs shall operate in HA and Uplink Failover modes. DHCP Relaying is really critical to us as all AD-Clients and network devices are centrally managed. Implementation of this feature will decide if we can stick to the ASG or have to watch for an other solution. RED is no option.

        We are thinking to move from ASTARO 7.502 (cluser licence and 55 sattelite site) to another solution. This option is mandatory and present in smaller solution than astaro (home adsl router for example)
        Where can i find the plannig of the dev trunk ?

        This is a showstopper for us, every other manufacturer supports this feature, why does Ostario not?
        When is this going to be implemented?
