    - DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol that lets network administrator manage centrally and automate the assignment of an Internet protocol.

    - DHCP is a client/server protocol that automatically provides an IP host with its IP address and other related configuration information such as the subnet mask and default gateway.

    - DHCP server uses two types of addresses,
    1. Permanent address
    2. Pool address

    - Permanent address that are assigned to server computers. DHCP allows non-mobile computer that runs a server software which is assigned with a permanent address, the address will not change when the computer reboots.

    - Pool address is allocated on demand when a computer boots and sends a request to DHCP . The DHCP server consults its database to find the configuration information.
