Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol used to configure devices that are connected to a network so they can communicate on that network using the Internet Protocol (IP). It involves clients and a server operating in a client-server model. In a typical personal home local area network (LAN), the server is a router while the clients are personal computers, smart phones, or printers.
