Welcome to the DHCP Server for Windows

A DHCP Server assigns IP addresses to client computers. This is very often used in enterprise networks to reduce configuration efforts. All IP addresses of all computers are stored in a database that resides on a server machine.

This is a very simple and easy to use implementation of a DHCP Server for Windows based systems supporting all Windows operating systems from Windows 98 to Windows 8.

The configuration data as well as the client “database” is kept in an INI file. See description of INI file. The DHCP Server runs instantly without any installation as a service or application. See running the DHCP Server

The DHCP Server is free software: it can be used and redistributed for both academic and commercial purposes at absolutely no cost. There are no royalties or GNU-like “copyleft” restrictions. There is no requirements such as including copyright messages or logos involved in using the software. The software is provided “as is”, without warranty of any kind.
