Servers and DHCP?

Discussion in 'Home Networking' started by Andrew Hodgson, Sep 1, 2003.

  1. Hi all,

    I have a couple of servers on the home network running Windows. I
    have DHCPD and have included in the conf file to assign most ip
    addresses staticly using the mac address of the server nic. I am just
    wondering whether it is best to keep this as a failsafe, but manually
    specify the ip address in the tcp/ip properties of the server? What
    is the advantage of doing this?
