Who Does the Allocation and How?
That is the million-dollar question. We can do it in two ways, that is, automatically or manually. The first one is done by a protocol, coined as DHCP, short for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, one that is designed specifically for this purpose. It is free of human interference.
You know, if you try to break it up, it refers to dynamically configuring the host, precisely what I’m explaining to you here.
The second method is the contrasting one. Herein, you have to do everything with your own hands. It’s the static method. The addresses allocated using it do not undergo alterations.
