Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol
<protocol> (DHCP) A protocol that provides a means to dynamically
allocate IP addresses to computers on a local area network. The system
administrator assigns a range of IP addresses to DHCP and each client computer
on the LAN has its TCP/IP software configured to request an IP address from the
DHCP server. The request and grant process uses a lease concept with a
controllable time period.
DHCP is defined in RFC 2131.
Microsoft introduced DHCP on their NT server with version 3.5 in late 1994.
