DHCP, DNS, and NAT: 3 Common Network Services
Today, networks depend on various services to effectively transmit data across the internet and within local area networks. DHCP, DNS, and NAT are three critical components that support data transmission to and from a local network to the internet.
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server is a network server that assigns network IP addresses to network-connected devices. This service is critical as it manages how network-connected devices are dynamically assigned a unique internal IP address.
DNS or Domain Name Service can be thought of as the phonebook of the internet. This service maps domain names such as google.com to their respective IP addresses so that users wishing to locate the server hosting google.com can traverse to that unique IP address.
NAT or Network Address Translation is a network translation service that can translate the IP addresses of internal devices to IP addresses that are routable over the Internet. A subset of NAT, known as Port Address Translation (PAT) allows one single public IP to be seen from the outside world, so that outside services may establish communication with that single public IP then be redirected internally within the network to the specific network-connected device they wish to communicate with.
