The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network management protocol used on UDP/IP networks whereby a DHCP server dynamically assigns an IP address and other network configuration parameters to each device/computer on a network.

  • Static vs dynamic IP addressing
  • Reservations
  • Scopes
  • Leases: show ip dhcp binding
  • Options (DNS servers, suffixes)
  • IP helper/DHCP relay

Available DHCP Servers:

dhclient -r INTERFACE
dhclient -r INTERFACE -v (verbose)
