What is DHCP ?
DHCP stands for "Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol".
IP Address of a host can be manually assigned. In large networks there is a possibility of allocating the same IP address to two computers. Then an IP conflict can occur which will prevent both computers and one of the computers from accessing the network. In order to avoid such a situation the IP address can be dynamically (automatically) allocated by using a special server process, which use the DHCP Protocol.
DHCP was created by the Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force.
