9.1. DHCP overview

Included in the ARM Firmware Suite is a simple standalone application that downloads a binary image over ethernet into memory on the Integrator development board. The main use for this application is downloading large images of several megabytes or more. The application uses the DHCP protocol to obtain the information required to download the image.

DHCP is a super set of the Bootstrap Protocol (BOOTP). DHCP allows a central server to allocate Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to clients on its network.

DHCP is defined by Dynamic Host Configuration Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force. The RFC 1541 documentation is downloadable from http://rfc.net/rfc1541.html.
