DHCP is a client-server protocol that is used for client computers (workstations) to request their IP configuration information from a central server.
is the underlying protocol for network administration giving the network manager complete control over the distribution of configuration information.
Provides a mechanism for allocating IP addresses dynamically, so that addresses automatically can be reused when hosts no longer need them.
IP address allocations scheme that uses BOOTP (Bootstrap Protocol) commands but leases the addresses to end-stations for fixed periods of time, thus allowing re-use.
The "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol" automatically assigns static or dynamic IP addresses to clients. It also manages gateway settings for changing networks as well as DNS data.
A protocol that offers dynamic configuration of IP addresses and related information. DHCP provides safe, reliable, and simple TCP/IP network configuration, prevents address conflicts, and helps conserve the use of IP addresses through centralized management of address allocation. Defined in RFC 1541.
A superset of the Boot Protocol (BOOTP) which offers greater flexibility for IP address allocation. It provides the standard BOOTP-like method as well as automatic (long-term) or dynamic (short-term) allocation of IP addresses from a pool of available addresses.
A communications protocol that automatically assigns a computer dynamic configuration of IP addresses and TCP/IP network configuration information when the computer logs on to a network. DHCP therefore enables a network administrator to manage and distribute IP addresses from a central location on a network. See TCP/IP.
An industry-standard protocol that assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to computers for temporary connected use on an IP network. encryption A way of making data indecipherable while it is being sent from computer to computer. file-name extension mapping Connecting all files with a certain file name extension to a program. For example, through the Windows NT Explorer, all .txt files are associated by default with Notepad. In Internet Explorer, you can associate file name extensions with applications by use of the Helpers dialog box. To display this dialog box, from the View Menu, choose Helpers.
is a communications protocol that lets network administrators manage centrally and automate the assignment of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses in an organization's network. Each machine that can connect to the Internet needs a unique IP address. When an organization sets up its computer users with a connection to the network, an IP address must be assigned to each machine manually without DHCP. With DHCP, the IP addresses may be assigned to each computer automatically. DHCP lets a network administrator supervise and distribute IP addresses from a central point.
A protocol that provides a means to dynamically allocate IP addresses to computers on a local area network.
A protocol that is capable of automatically configuring the iP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS addresses within a network.
A protocol used to retrieve startup information such as a subnet mask and IP address from a DHCP server.
Using the Internet's set of protocols (TCP/IP), each machine that can connect to the Internet needs a unique IP address. When an organization sets up its computer users with a connection to the Internet, an IP address must be assigned to each machine. DHCP lets a network administrator supervise and distribute IP addresses from a central point and automatically sends a new IP address when a computer is plugged into a different place in the network.
An industry-standard (TCP/IP) protocol that assigns Internet Protocol (IP) configurations to computers. The DHCP-server computer makes the assignments, and the client computer calls the server computer to obtain the address.
Internet standard, based on RFC 1541, for the automatic allocation of IP addresses.
(DHCP) â€“ A protocol available with many operating systems that automatically issues IP addresses within a specified range to devices on a network. The device retains the assigned address for a specific administrator-defined period.
A protocol designed for machines on a local network to dynamically get an IP address from a DHCP server. DMA
Also known as DHCP, is a protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. DHCP simplifies network administrative work because the software keeps tracks of IP addresses as opposed to the administrator.
A networking protocol that provides safe, reliable, and simple TCP/IP network configuration and offers dynamic configuration of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for computers. DHCP ensures that address conflicts do not occur and helps conserve the use of IP addresses through centralized management of address allocation.
DHCP is a computer network protocol for centrally assigning and keeping track of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Each computer that accesses the Internet must first have an IP address. The IP address can be manually entered into the computer or it can be done automatically by a DHCP server. The automatic method requires less effort by the user and enables centralized management of this network resource. Access points often provide DHCP server service as one of their features.
A protocol that was based on the BOOTP protocol that may be used to dynamically assign an IP address, from a reserved pool of addresses, to a network client or device. Additionally, DHCP may assign all network configuration settings and may be used to register a computer name and its address with a dynamic DNS server.
In a Small Business Server network, Small Business Server is also a DHCP server. The DHCP server uses a TCP/IP protocol that enables a client computer connected to the Small Business Server network to be assigned a temporary IP address automatically when the client computer connects to the network.
(DHCP) DHCP is a protocol that uses a server to dynamically configures a client when requested. DHCP is similar to BootP with the addition of address pools and lease times. See also Bootstrap Protocol (BootP).
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), a superset of the BOOTP protocol, enables the automatic assignment of IP addresses to clients on networks from a pool of addresses. The IP address assignment and configuration occurs automatically whenever appropriate client systems (workstations and portable computers) attach to a network. The TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS implementation of DHCP is based on the JOIN product by Competitive Automation.
A Protocol for assigning dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. With dynamic addressing, a device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. In some systems, the device' IP address can even change while it is still connected. DHCP also supports a mix of static and dynamic IP addresses.
A protocol that offers dynamic assignment of IP addresses and related information for temporarily connected network users.
A technology allowing TCP/IP address, subnet mask, gateway and other parameters to be assigned to a workstation automatically.
DHCP is the process of automatically configuring the TCP/IP settings for every computer on a network.
An Internet protocol used for assigning network layer (Internet Protocol) addresses. Or the DHCP is an Internet standard for assigning IP addresses dynamically to IP hosts.
A TCP/IP service protocol that offers dynamic leased configuration of host IP addresses and distributes other configuration parameters to eligible network clients. DHCP provides safe, reliable, and simple TCP/IP network configuration, prevents address conflicts, and helps conserve the use of client IP addresses on the network. DHCP uses a client/server model where the DHCP server maintains centralized management of IP addresses that are used on the network. DHCP-supporting clients can then request and obtain lease of an IP address from a DHCP server as part of their network boot process. See also: IP address; service; Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP); lease
The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a set of rules used by a communications device such as a computer, router or networking adapter to allow the device to request and obtain an IP address from a server which has a list of addresses available for assignment.
