      is the vlan that your server is on the same as the port you are connecting your laptop too?

      If not then you will need to put the ip helper command into the vlan for the port your laptop is connected to.

      e.g.

      conf t
      int vlan 100
      ip helper-address [ip address of dhcp server]

      This will then forward all broadcast requests (dhcp requests) from the vlan to your dhcp server.
