Where available, we strongly recommend the use of DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration
Protocol) to set your TCP/IP (network) configuration automatically.
You will receive a fixed IP address when using DHCP. DHCP configuaration is the
default on most new computers, so most likely you will not need to make any
changes. Instructions for a number of different operating systems are available
below. If you need assistance, you may wish to contact the
CIS Help Desk at ext. 2439.
