Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client/server protocol that automatically issue Internet Protocols (IP) and other related configuration information like subnet mask and a default gateway from the DHCP server to the client computer.

The DHCP client will always receive instruction and allocated IPs from the DHCP server computer. Some of the services received from the DHCP server includes: – Internet Protocol (IP) Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway.

Internet Protocol (IP) – This is a numerical label assigned to each device for communication purposes on the Local Area Network (LAN)

Subnet Mask – This is logically subdivision of a range of IP network. The process of subdividing a network into two or more networks is called subnetting. In IPv4 the routing prefix is expressed in quad-dotted representation addresses.

Default gateway – This is a TCP/IP network node that serves as an access point to another network. The Internet service provider (ISP) provides you with a physical gadget called router that will enable your local computer have an access to the internet through it. The default gateway normally connect the internal network and the external network (Internet)

Types of Scopes in Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

A DHCP scope is the range of possible IP addresses leased by DHCP server to client computers on a subnet.  DHCP scope includes the following:-

DHCP Bootstrap Configuration – This is the initial host configuration before the introduction of DHCP protocol. The BOOTP service requests Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for BOOTP clients form the DHCP server. If DHCP server is unavailable then the BOOTP service might not be able to function well.

DHCP Client Option Configuration – This is an optional service that DHCP server provides to clients computers. They normally issues options like:-

  1. The default Gateway
  2. The Domain Name System (DNS) for the server

DHCP Lease Availability – This is the period an IP address can be assigned a computer before it expires. The IP address will be available to the assigned computer and renewed after a specified period of time.
