Describe the term DHCP

Describe the term DHCP? Explain why it is used? What are scopes and super scopes?




DHCP abbreviates for Dynamic host configuration protocol. It is employed to assign the IP addresses to huge number of PCs in a network environment. This makes the IP management much easy.

Scope: It includes IP address such as subnet mask, gateway IP and DNS server IP and exclusion range that a client can use to communicate with other PCs in the network.

Super scope: Whenever we join two or more scopes altogether and then it is termed as super scope.
