In order for a client to connect to a TCP/IP based network, it needs a Internet Protocol (IP) address which uniquely identifies it among the other devices connected to the network. In addition, the addresses of one or more DNS servers and a gateway may optionally be configured. One way to configure this is to manually assign this information to each client on the network. Whilst this approach can work for a small network, it quickly becomes unmanageable in larger enterprises. To alleviate this problem, the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol was created. This takes the form of one or more servers on a network which dynamically allocate IP addresses and other network configuration information to network clients.
