5.3.1: Consider the following key points when implementing static and dynamic services on your LAN:
• Devices on your LAN that other computers and applications share and access for services should have static IP addresses. For example, a local web server or printer should always have the same static IP address on a LAN.
• Desktops and mobile clients that only access services and do not host services on a network should obtain IP addresses dynamically to allow for mobility and scalability of the network.
• You have better control over a small network with static address assignment; however, static addressing is more time-consuming and increases the possibility of duplicate IP addresses.
