DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, used for allocating or distributing IP addresses to interfaces and service.

A DHCP Server is configured by the Network Administrator where he set the DHCP server for allocating IP address to the system, which request for it.

Through the DHCP leases file we can easily track record of the IP address assigned to various systems or interfaces assigned through DHCP.

To eliminate IP conflict, static IP should not be assigned, if assigned its must be excluded from the DHCP range specified in DHCP server configuration.

DHCP is the short term for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It is a protocol used in communications that allows network administrators to manage centrally and automate the allocation of IP addresses or Internet Protocol addresses in a network. Using the IP or Internet Protocol, every computer that is able to connect to the internet should have a unique IP address.

The unique IP address or a unique IP address is assigned to the computer once an internet connection has been established. If there is no DHCP or DHCP is not available, the IP address should be entered manually on every computer on the network. If a computer has been transferred to a new location on the network, a new IP address must be entered.

DHCP allows a network administrator to direct and allocate IP addresses from a central point and then automatically transmits a new IP address whenever a computer is connected from a different location in the network.
