A thin client is initially configured to obtain its
IP address and network configurations from a Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol (DHCP) server. A DHCP server provides the IP address or DNS
name of the FTP server and the FTP root-path location of software
Microsoft.msi form to access the IP address
and network configurations through the DHCP upgrade process.
DHCP is recommended to configure and upgrade thin
clients as it saves time and efforts needed to complete these processes
locally on multiple thin clients. If a DHCP server is not available,
fixed IP addresses can be assigned and it must be entered locally
for each device.
