IPv4 Address can be assigned by following types tutorials

1) Static IP Address (Assigned Manually)

2) Dynamic IP Address (with help of DHCP)

3) APIPA - Automatic Private IP Address



  • Static IP are assigned to NIC card manually. When you manually assign an IP address, you must manually assign other TCP/IP address, subnet mask and default gateway. You are also required to configure DNS Server.


  • Dynamic IP addresses are automatically assigned to computers by DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) server. When a DHCP dynamically assign an IP address, the server also assign subnet mask and default gateway.

  • In this case there exist a DHCP server or DHCP compatible Router exist. Both DHCP Server or Router is configured with DHCP scope (that is Starting and Ending IP Address Range) and Exclusions (IP address restricted from assigning).

3) APIPA - Automatic Private IP Address

  • APIPA are used when a computer is configured to get IP address for DHCP. However if DHCP server is unavailable for some reason, In this case APIPA will assign IP address in the range from to with the subnet mask of
