DHCP Router Configuration
I spent this morning reviewing DHCP router configuration and the many options that you have as a DHCP server. From what I've seen in real networks most routers won't utilize DHCP configuration unless it's for a smaller network using a Cisco 1841 or something similar. The bigger enterprise routers are usually deployed in bigger environments where there are already dedicated DHCP server(s) in place. I did learn a command that would of helped me tremendously during my CCNA studies.
To all the people studying for the CCNA try out this command on a router and you'll get a nice surprise:
Router# show ip port-map
Yup that's right, you get a complete list of the most common TCP and UDP ports used, very handy for the CCNA exam or just for a quick reference!
