The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) allows a computer or other network device to obtain an IP address dynamically when it connect to the network. This makes it possible to share a pool of IP addresses among a number of users or devices and to accomodate guests on a network. The DHCP server has a defined range of IP addresses available which can be leased.

DHCP is defined in RFC 2131.
