Chapter 22

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

Abstract

In this chapter, you will learn how IP addresses are assigned in modern IP networks. You will learn how the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and related protocols, such as BOOTP, combine to allow IP addresses to be assigned to devices dynamically instead of by hand.

You will learn how users often struggle to find printers and servers whose IP addresses “jump around,” and you will learn means of dealing with this issue.
