Which DHCPv4 message will a client send to accept an IPv4 address that is offered by a DHCP server?

  • unicast DHCPACK
  • broadcast DHCPACK
  • unicast DHCPREQUEST
  • broadcast DHCPREQUEST
    Answers Explanation & Hints:

    When a DHCP client receives DHCPOFFER messages, it will send a broadcast DHCPREQUEST message for two purposes. First, it indicates to the offering DHCP server that it would like to accept the offer and bind the IP address. Second, it notifies any other responding DHCP servers that their offers are declined.
