7.10. Assign IP addresses automatically without a DHCP server

Automatic IP address assignment takes the headache out of IP address management. When adding systems you don't have to worry about finding an unused address but can simply hook up the computer, boot it, and let it take its address lease automatically.

While automatic address assignment becomes more important as network size increases, it still can be an important tool even on small networks.

Fortunately, with Windows 2000 you can take advantage of automatic address assignment without the presence of a DHCP server.
