Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)

Related pages

The DHCP service provides standard network configuration settings to machines registered for connection to the Campus Network, enabling them to work on the network each time they are started up.

This service is fundamental to the operation of all nearly IT systems connected to the Campus Network.



Anyone wishing to connect computers and other equipment to the Campus Network.

With DHCP, computers request IP addresses and networking parameters automatically from our DHCP server, reducing the need for a network administrator or a user to configure these settings manually.

DHCP can be used by virtually all computers and equipment capable of connecting to a network.

Our DHCP service is provided to machines registered in the LAN Database.

Devices connected to the wired or wifi network using 802.1X do not use the DHCP service.
