Hi,

Please can you tell me what are the other tasks carried out by DHCP server apart from allocating IP address?

Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Main tasks of a DHCP Server:

1.) Protocol stack.
2.) Configuration Parameters to hosts.
3.) Application settings/parameters to hosts.
4.) Reduces or eliminates necessity of manually configuring host.
5.) Prevent multiple uses of the same IP.

Hope this helps!
