DHCP protocol manager that acts on the application layer on standard DHCP 67/68 UDP ports. In a TCP / IP architecture network, every computer must have a different IP address. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is the protocol that provides a means to allocate these addresses dynamically.
The DHCP service is a DHCP protocol manager that acts on the application layer on the standard DHCP 67/68 UDP ports. In a TCP / IP architecture network, every computer must have a different IP address.
DHCP is responsible for distributing IP addresses and network configurations to your corporate environment. It is an efficient solution since, through it, the BLOCKBIT UTM server distributes IP addresses as the devices on the network request a connection. It is important to note that, in addition to the IP address, it also assigns other parameters, such as: hostname, DNS, default route.
- Distribution of IP addresses per device / per server:
- Mac Vlan (virtual addressing device).
- Distribution of IP addresses by network / subnet
- Policies for IP address distribution;
- Support for Radius server authentication.
- Range distribution;
- Distribution of static addresses (IP address reservation by MAC filter)
- Sufixo DNS;
- Multiple DNS;
- Multiple Wins;
- TTL - Renewal time (lifetime)
