BOOTP/DHCP automatically defined IP address

Specifying a local configuration for every computer on an IP network can be inconvenient or impractical. GhostCasting supports BOOTP and DHCP servers.

You must run the BOOTP or DHCP server to specify a computer's IP address. The BOOTP/DHCP server listens on the network for computers requesting an IP address, and replies with the address that the BOOTP/DHCP server is configured to provide. The BOOTP/DHCP server must be configured to provide the IP address, subnet mask, and (optionally) the default gateway.
