The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol that enables a server to automate assignment of IP addresses to hosts. A DHCP server can be configured to provide other network information like IP addresses of TFTP servers, DNS server, boot file name and vendor specific options. Commonly there are two types of address assignments, dynamic and manual. The lease of dynamic addresses is renewed periodically; manual leases are permanently assigned to hosts. With this feature, you can configure multiple pools of IP addresses for IP address assignment and tracking.
