DHCP is an authoritative overview and expert guide to the set up and management of a DHCP server. The book begins with a thorough technical introduction to DHCP--how it was developed, how it interacts with other protocols such as TCP/IP, etc. Part II discusses how DHCP operates; including initial configurations, handling rebooting and lease extension, and DHCP relay agents. In Part III, the authors share their expertise on the efficient use of DHCP in different environments. Part IV covers the technical intricacies of the interaction between DHCP servers and clients, and how to optimally manage each relationship. The final section covers network hardware, inter-server communication, security, SNMP, and IP mobility. The book concludes with several appendices that provide a rich resource for networking professionals working with DHCP.
