CONFIGURING DHCP SERVER WITH A SWITCH CONNECTING 3 COMPUTERS


Hello friends! Wish you happy new year

Friends in my last post CONNECTING 2 COMPUTERS USING A SWITCH I mentioned the steps to connect 2 computers with a switch in my today’s post I will mention the steps to connect 3 computers with the help of a switch and a DHCP server.

WHAT IS DHCP SERVER ?

DHCP server is a server which provides ip address to our computer

So let’s start and connect 3 computers with the help of a switch and a DHCP server.

# open Cisco Packet Tracer Student (it’s a software to learn ccna practicals)

# now take 3 computers , a switch and a server

1 SERVER, 3 COMPUTERS AND 1 SWITCH

# now connect 3 computers and the server to the switch using automatically choose connection type wire

CONNECTING SERVER, SWITCH AND 3 COMPUTERS

# now click on server

# click on services > DHCP

# and select on

SEVER CONFIG.

# now in server click on desktop > IP configuration

SEVER CONFIG.

# now give a ip address let’s say 1.0.0.1 and press tab and the subnet mask will be added automatically

SEVER CONFIG.

 

# now click on any computer

# go to desktop > IP configuration

# and now select DHCP, you will find that the computer has got it’s ip address automatically

COMPUTER IP ADDRESS

# repeat the same procedure in other two computers

THAT’S IT

This is how you can connect computers using a DHCP server. The biggest advantage of having DHCP server is that you don’t need to give ip address to each of the device.
