Question Newbie :DHCP with MAC addresses ?

greetings ,

I want to setup 1Gbps our lab network and we purchased 'Buffulo Giga layer switch ' with 24ports.
Is there a way to tell DHCP to assign specific IP to a particular MAC address of a machine ?
We want to use DHCP and whatever the port we use ,it should have same IP ..

any tips?
thanks in advance.

Yes you can do MAC reservations so a device always gets the same IP; though you would have to specify which DHCP server you were using before we could give you the proper configuration options to do it.


dhcp, hub, mac address, switch
