Specifying a Method for Obtaining IP Address

You can either specify a static IP address or allow the Instant AP to obtain an IP address from the DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol. A network protocol that enables a server to automatically assign an IP address to an IP-enabled device from a defined range of numbers configured for a given network.  server. By default, the Instant APs obtain IP address from the DHCPDynamic Host Configuration Protocol.

The following procedure configures a static IP address:

When IAP-VPNVirtual Private Network. VPN enables secure access to a corporate network when located remotely. It enables a computer to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if it were directly connected to the private network, while benefiting from the functionality, security, and management policies of the private network. This is done by establishing a virtual point-to-point connection through the use of dedicated connections, encryption, or a combination of the two. is not configured or IPsecInternet Protocol security.

A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users. It converts human-readable computer host names into IP addresses and IP addresses into host names. It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. query from the client that is associated to the master Instant AP is taken by DNSDomain Name System.

However, the DNSDomain Name System. A DNS server functions as a phone book for the intranet and Internet users.

It stores several records for a domain name such as an address 'A' record, name server (NS), and mail exchanger (MX) records. The Address 'A' record is the most important record that is stored in a DNS server, because it provides the required IP address for a network peripheral or element. query from the client that is associated to the slave Instant AP is not affected to this behavior.
