DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. DHCP is used to dynamically assign an IP address to a device when it connects to a network for the first time. The DHCP server assigns the IP address and communicates this information to the client in a message called “DHCP Offer”.

There are many benefits of using DHCP configuration, including:

  • It can provide IP addresses for all devices on the network.
  • It can resolve IP address conflicts.
  • It can improve security by assigning different IP address ranges to different devices.
  • It can prevent duplicate configurations by automatically assigning unique identifiers to each device on the network.
  • It's easy to use and manage 6) it's cost efficient

DHCP operations fall into four phases: server discovery, IP lease offer, IP lease request, and IP lease acknowledgement. These stages are often abbreviated as DORA for discovery, offer, request, and acknowledgement.

The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network management protocol that automates the process of setting devices on IP networks so that they can access network services like DNS, NTP, and any UDP or TCP-based communication protocol.
