The procedure of allocating temporary IP addresses as they are needed, often used for dial-up modems.
With dynamic addressing, a device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. Dynamic addressing simplifies network administration because the software keeps track of IP addresses rather than requiring an administrator to manage the task. This means that a new computer can be added to a network without the hassle of manually assigning it a unique IP address. Many ISPs use dynamic IP addressing for dial-up users.
An IP address assigned to a client computer or device by a server using DHCP. This address may expire after a pre-determined time and a new address would then be automatically assigned. An example of an IP address is 10.128.10.67.
