Explanation of the IPv4 address assignment using Ethernet.

Explanation of the IPv4 address assignment using Ethernet.

The IPv4 address for the Ethernet network interface is assigned in several ways using the following modes:

Note
  • The AutoIP mode is an extension of the DHCP mode. As a consequence, the AutoIP mode is enabled permanently with DHCP and cannot be enabled or disabled manually.
  • In AutoIP mode, a DHCP client is still trying to obtain an IP address every 120 seconds. On success, the IP address is re-assigned. The system then starts using a new, DHCP-assigned IP address and the mode is changed back to DHCP mode.
  • All available functions for using Ethernet are explained in Ethernet Interface.
