Hi guys. Today, I gonna talk about Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) and how you can configure it on a Mikrotik router.
DHCP is a protocol whose main responsibility is to lease IP addresses to hosts on a network. It defines other parameters such as the default gateway, the domain name server, as well as the subnetmask. On a network made up of so many users, it is always advisable to have DHCP configured so as to ease the stress of having to go from one host to another assigning IP addresses.
The configuration of a DHCP server on a Mikrotik router is very simple and straight forward. Follow the steps enumerated below:

Click on IP
Click on DHCP server
Click on DHCP setup
Follow the steps to have a DHCP server configured.

I hope this helped. Thank your for reading.
