  • Assigning Random IP Addresses

    How can I assign random IP addresses for clients inside the netowrk through DHCP, then if users want to access external resources then assign registered IP addresses?

    If you have a router connecting you to the internet or external network, this will happen automatically

      Thanks! The reason I ask is because I've seen this done. The Network Administrator used a class A range of addresses for the network that attached new IP headers for when they access the Internet. Or something like that.

        This is usually a standard feature of routers. It's called Network Address Translation (NAT) or sometimes Port Address Translation (PAT)

        Here's some articles about it
