Hi ,

DHCP protocol is utilized by some network nodes to automatically retrieve their network configurations from a centralized server and icmp is a complementary protocol to IP (Internet Protocol). Like IP, ICMP resides on the Network Layer of the OSI Model.ICMP is designed for sending control and test messages across IP networks.

Hope to Help !!
