DHCP setup

I'm installing Pro-Engineer on a couple of NT boxen, with
the license server on an HPUX 10.20 machine.  Setup for
Pro tells me that I have to have DHCP configured on the NT
boxes, so I assume that I should have the HPUX box
configured as the DHCP server, but I don't know where to
begin.  Would appreciate any help.

Thanks much,

 Do you have an NT server system available?
  Do you really need DHCP for the Pro-Engineer machines?  DHCP is a protocol to assign an IP address to a machine out of a pool of addresses.  I can't see why you shouldn't be able to just assign a static IP address to each machine, if your company works that way.

 I actually only meant to make that a comment, sorry - I must have checked 'Answer' without even thinking.
  I'm not sure how you would set up HPUX as a DHCP server; presumably you must be able to get DHCP software for it - in which case you'd just need to configure it with a range of IP addresses that can be assigned, but I couldn't tell you anything HPUX specific.

After having gone back through the docs it turns out that I don't need dhcp--I got that from the error message.  I *do* have to be able to ping the server by name, which I understand to mean that dns does have to be set up.  On to the next level.

Thanks much,
