Thanks Using a DHCP Client If your local network has a DHCP server, you can configure Linux to obtain its IP address from this server automatically, by using a DHCP client. This client sends a broadcast message on its local network segment to search for a DHCP server. If a DHCP server responds, and if the ensuing negotiation is successful, the result should be a system with an IP address and associated information, fully configured to use the connection. NOTE If you want your computer to function as a DHCP server so that it can deliver IP addresses to other systems, consult Chapter 5, Configuring Other Computers via DHCP.
This section describes how to do this, starting with the tools to do the job a single time. The section entitled "Making Your Changes Permanent" describes how to configure your system to use your settings automatically whenever it reboots. NOTE Traditionally, server computers have used static IP address assignment, because this ensures that the computer's IP address won't change. 67) via a DNS server, as described in Chapter 18, Administering a Domain via DNS.
