Chapter 13

Planning for DHCP Service (Tasks)

You can use the DHCP service in a network that you are creating or in a network that exists. If you are setting up a network, see Chapter 2, Planning Your TCP/IP Network (Tasks) before you attempt to set up the DHCP service. If the network already exists, continue in this chapter.

This chapter describes what you need to do before you set up the DHCP service on your network. The information is intended for use with DHCP Manager, although you can also use the command-line utility dhcpconfig to set up the DHCP service.

This chapter contains the following information:
