Hello!
i have a course work about Local Network!
my question is if the DHCP server failed to give IPs to the computers!
what the IPs will be given the computers in this situation and what called this operation?

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

The 169.*.*.* IP address is what is called the APIPA IP address. It is assigned when an IP address isn’t received from the DHCP server and a static IP address isn’t configured.


Although I do agree it would be in the course notes.

    This is all what i wanted to know! APIPA IP address

    You should also know that "APIPA" is not technically correct except in Microsoft clients. The "APIPA" name is a term used by Microsoft for the way it implements the "address autoconfiguration" required in RFC 3927.

    In general, "APIPA" is widely enough known to be understood in most related contexts, but it's a vendor-specific name.
