Lesson 4. Assigning IP Addresses

Once you have calculated the IP addresses and subnet mask for the computers on your network, you should include in your plan just how the actual TCP/IP configuration process for each of the computers is going to proceed. There are two basic alternatives from which to choose. You can manually configure each computer, or you can use DHCP, an automated TCP/IP configuration service included with Windows Server 2003 and many other operating systems.

After this lesson, you will be able to

  • List the drawbacks of manual TCP/IP client configuration

  • Understand how DHCP automatically configures TCP/IP clients

Estimated lesson time: 15 minutes
