So, what is Ethernet/IP protocol? Think of the network as a transport mechanism, be it a phone line, serial twisted pair, Ethernet, or some other physical layer and the protocol as the language used on that network. This post takes you through the basics of Ethernet/IP.

In today’s world, just about every device we own is somehow able to connect to the internet, or at the very least is able to be part of a network. DHCP makes that possible. Without it, you would have to manually set the IP address of every device on your network.
