DHCP Server

The DHCP server gives out IP addresses from a pool of available IP addresses to machines on a network that are set to receive their IP addresses through DHCP. The DHCP server also gives out information about the Subnet Mask, DNS servers, Domain Name, the Gateway, and other information required to work on the network.
