Chapter 12. TCP/IP Network Administration > Configuring IP Addresses

Configuring IP Addresses

Whether you are dealing with a server or a network client, the computer must be configured with an IP address and subnet mask or configured to request this information from a server running the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), which is discussed in the next section.

The TCP/IP protocol stack is added to a computer’s configuration by default by most client and network operating systems. For example, when you install Red Hat Linux on a computer, you are asked during the installation process to either enter an IP address and subnet mask or allow the computer to request the IP addressing information from a DHCP server (for more about Red Hat installations see Chapter 10, “Networking with Linux”).
