- Bootstrap Protocolsearch for term
The Bootstrap Protocol allows a host to configure itself dynamically at boot time. This protocol provides three services:
- IP address assignment
- Detection of the IP address for a serving machine
- The name of a file to be loaded and executed by the client machine
This protocol is the basis for DHCP. It allows a client computer to receive an IP address from a BootP server without having a static IP address defined beforehand on the client machine.
