Configuring Core Networking

Before any operating system can "talk" to its siblings, it needs to have an address – in that same way that you do (well, houses do) in order to be able to receive post. Correctly configured network addresses are fundamental to rock-solid networking functions and services that build on, such as Domain Name System (DNS), Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), and Active Directory.

This chapter explains IPv4 and IPv6 addressing, interoperability, and routing in the Windows Server 2016 operating system.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Configuring IPv4 addresses and options
