Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network management protocol used on Internet Protocol (IP) local area networks. A DHCP server must be present on the network. A device connected to the network requests an IP address from the DHCP server using the DHCP protocol; the server assigns a unique address to the device, identifying it for TCP/IP communication, and supplies other network configuration parameters. In the absence of a DHCP server, a device that needs an IP address must be manually assigned a static address by a network administrator, or must assign itself an APIPA address. A device configured to use dynamic (DHCP) addressing that is connected to a different network will be assigned an address on that network without needing to be reconfigured. However if the address of a device must be known—for example, a printer which processes print jobs sent to its IP address—a known static address is required.
