Unicast IP Routing

Microsoft® Windows® 2000 provides extensive support for unicast Internet Protocol (IP) routing (routing to a unicast destination IP address) with the unicast IP routing protocols and features of the Windows 2000 Router. Your implementation of unicast routing can be simple or complex depending on the size of your IP internetwork, the use of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to allocate IP address configuration, connectivity to the Internet, the presence of non-Microsoft or legacy hosts on your internetwork, and other factors.
