Today we are some important question and answer dynamic host configuration protocol purpose. We are realized every IT professional this information must needed. So, we are think this information is very helpful every IT persons……
Q:01:- What is DHCP?
DHCP stands for “Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol”.
Q:02:- What is DHCP’ purpose?
DHCP’s purpose is to enable individual computers on an IP network to extract their configurations from a server (the ‘DHCP server’) or servers, in particular, servers that have no exact information about the individual computers until they request the information. The overall purpose of this is to reduce the work necessary to administrator a large IP network. The most significant piece of information distributed in this manner is the IP address.
Q:03:- What protocol and port does DHCP use?
DHCP, like BOOTP runs over UDP, utilizing ports 67 and 68.
Q:04:- What is an IP address?
An IP address (also called an IP number ) is a number ( typically written as four numbers separated by periods, i.e. 184.108.40.206 or 220.127.116.11) which uniquely identifies a computer that is making use of the Internet. It is analogous to your telephone number in that the telephone number is used by the telephone network to direct calls to you. The IP address is used by the Internet to direct data to your computer, e.g. the data your web browser retrieves and displays when you surf the net. One task of DHCP is to assist in the problem of getting a functional and unique IP number into the hands of the computers that make use of the Internet.
Q:05:- What is a MAC address?
A MAC address ( also called an Ethernet address or an IEEE MAC address ) is a number ( typically written as twelve hexadecimal digits, 0 through 9 and A through F, or as six hexadecimal numbers separated by periods or colons, i.e. 0080002012ef, 0:80:0:2:20:ef) which you computer is located. In DHCP’s typical use, the server uses a requesting computers MAC address to uniquely identify it.
