Benefits of Using DHCP

DHCP allows for reliable assignment of IP addresses in a network by reducing the need to manually assign addresses to each host. This prevents IP conflicts that can disable a network.

Mobile users receive much of the benefit of DHCP, which allows them to travel anywhere on the intranetwork and automatically receive IP addresses when they reconnect to the network.

Interoperability with DNS servers provides name resolution for network resources, allowing DHCP servers and DHCP clients to register with DNS.
