Q & A: Can I setup XP as DHCP SERVER?

Postby chicagotech » Sat Dec 16, 2006 5:01 pm

The Windows XP is not designed as a DHCP. However, you may setup it using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) so that the XP can assign a IP to other clients. Alternatively, you can use Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA). With the APIPA, a Windows computer can assign itself an Internet Protocol (IP) address in the event that a DHCP server is not available or does not exist on the network. After the network adapter has been assigned an APIPA 169.254.x.y, the computer can use TCP/IP to communicate with any other computer that is connected to the same LAN address range with a subnet mask of 255.255.0.0. Note that the computer cannot communicate with computers on other subnets, or with computers that do not use automatic private IP addressing. Automatic private IP addressing is enabled by default.
