Once the relay is setup, the clients on the network will 
receive their address because the DHCP server will use the subnet 
information of the interface the broadcast packet is received on to 
assign the DHCP address.  The relay process converts the broadcast 
packet to a directed unicast and inserts the Gateway address that the 
DHCP server will use to assign the subnet information.
