Configuring DHCP Clients

A DHCP client is any computer or device that is configured to receive its IP address dynamically from the DHCP server. All Windows clients and Windows servers that do not require a static IP address can be configured as DHCP clients (actually all of them are configured as DHCP clients by default).

Figure 16.17 shows the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Properties dialog box for a client computer running Windows Vista Business Edition that has been configured as a DCHP client. Note that it is configured to get both its IP address and DNS server address automatically (both of which would be supplied by the DHCP server). All the Windows clients (including Windows Server 2008) use a similar dialog box to configure their IP properties.

Figure 16.17. You can easily configure any computer running Windows to be a DHCP client.
