Which two statements about DHCP are true? (Choose two.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E.
DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is a protocol used to automatically assign IP addresses, subnet masks, and other network configuration parameters to devices on a network. Let's analyze each statement to determine whether it is true or false:
A. DHCP uses TCP port 67. False. DHCP uses UDP port 67 for the server to receive requests from clients.
B. DHCP uses UDP ports 67 and 68. True. DHCP uses UDP port 67 for the server to receive requests from clients and UDP port 68 for clients to receive responses from the server.
C. The DHCPDiscover packet has a multicast address of 188.8.131.52. False. The DHCPDiscover packet is sent as a broadcast message to all devices on the network, not as a multicast message.
D. DHCPRequest is a broadcast message. True. When a client requests an IP address from a DHCP server, it sends a DHCPRequest message as a broadcast to all devices on the network to request an IP address lease.
E. The DHCPOffer packet is sent from the DHCP server. True. The DHCP server sends a DHCPOffer message to the client in response to the DHCPRequest message. This message contains the IP address lease that the server is offering to the client.
In summary, the correct answers are B and D.
