TCP/IP Configuration (part 8) We continue our discussion of IP address by examining Dynamic IP addresses. Dynamic IP addresses are assigned by DHCP a service that determines and assigns all the administration and management of that IP address. After taking this lesson, you'll know what the DHCP Discover process is, when the communication with MAC address takes place, if it assigns the subnet mask, manages the subnetting process, Default Gateway, DNS, as well as all other information relative to this IP addressing life cycle. You'll also learn what the purpose of lease length is, examine what that process entails, how MAC address reservation works, and what the range entails for assigning Dynamic IP addresses.
