9/21/2017 TestOut LabSim 1/1 5.2.4 Alternate IP Addressing Facts If a host is configured to obtain its IP address from a DHCP server but that server is unreachable, then an alternate IP address assignment method may be employed. These are as follows: Method Description Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) APIPA provides an option for automatic IP address assignment without a DHCP server. APIPA is enabled by default on most modern operating systems, including Windows and Linux. Using APIPA, hosts can assign themselves an IP address on the 169.254.0.0 network (with a mask of 255.255.0.0) if they can't locate a DHCP server. If a network host is configured to use dynamic IP addressing and a DHCP server can't be contacted, APIPA assigns a temporary IP address to the host. However, only the IP address and mask are assigned. Default gateway and DNS server addresses are not assigned. For this reason, APIPA can be used only to enable communications within a single subnet.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
