Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on Raspberry Pi

https://www.raspberrypi.org/learning/networking-lessons/lesson-3/plan/ In this lesson, students will learn how the Raspberry Pi can be used to demonstrate Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol on an isolated network. By now it will be clear that repeatedly changing the /etc/network/interfaces file is time-consuming and laborious. There are a number of disadvantages to giving static IP addresses to all computers on … Continue reading Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on Raspberry Pi
