    @pencils I think we need a lot more information to be able to help you. Please start by explaining in more detail what you are trying to do and what you think might or might not work…

    The first option would be if your switches can support sending dhcp options 66 {next-server} and dhcp option 67 {boot-file} then I would use them. It is the cleanest solution.

    If you can’t modify your dhcp server AND your clients AND fog server are on the same subnet then you can use a proxyDHCP server like dnsmasq. I created a write up for dnsmasq for Centos, but the configuration file should work for Ubuntu too: https://forums.fogproject.org/topic/6376/install-dnsmasq-on-centos-7

    If your fog server and target computes are in different subnets and you have a single dhcp server, you need to configure your router’s dhcp-relay or dhcp-helper service and add the dnsmasq server on as the last dhcp server in the chain.

    If you can run dnsmasq, you can run ProxyDHCP.

    Do note that current dnsmasq version does not support BIOS + UEFI booting, you need to choose one.
