Managing Client Network Configuration

There are three different ways to configure your network clients: manually, dynamically, and automatically. To use either dynamic or automatic configuration, just set the TCP/IP configuration on the client to obtain an IP address automatically. Client configuration is set in the Properties dialog box under the TCP/IP protocol in each specific connection in Network and Dial-up Connections.

Dynamic Configuration

Dynamic configuration is accomplished through the use of a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. A properly configured DHCP server can configure all the settings that a client needs, including IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, DNS server, NetBIOS node type, and WINS server. Windows 2000 computers are configured to use DHCP by default. DHCP client configuration is also supported in Windows 95/98 and NT.
