Configuring an Address Allocation Server (AAS)
The Address Allocation Server provides an IP address
allocation service to other network services.
``Example uses of the Address Allocation Server''
shows how DHCP servers and PPP remote access servers
can use an AAS server to obtain IP addresses that they
can assign to their clients.
Example uses of the Address Allocation Server
The AAS allocates and
reserves addresses for a specific period of time.
It offers the following advantages to you as a network administrator:
SCO AAS provides the
Address Allocation Manager
for administering the AAS service.
IP addresses can be configured into pools for use on
different subnets or by different network services.
An IP address can be reserved for only as long as the
client remains connected to the network.
It allows a limited number of IP addresses to be shared
among clients that do not require permanent IP
Addresses become automatically available again at the expiration
of a period of time, their ``lease'', without requiring you to
take any action.
