2.2.3 and 2.2.4: You can assign an address to hosts in your LAN in one of the following ways:

Manual configuration: You can enter a static IP address, subnet mask, and gateway on hosts in your network. These static addresses remain the same for these devices unless you manually change them.

Dynamic configuration: You can configure a DHCP server to dynamically assign addresses to computers on your network. You can specify the address range, client lease, and other parameters on the DHCP server. You also need to configure clients to request addressing information from the DHCP server.

You can also provide each host with a unique network name to aid in troubleshooting and identification on the network.
