For assigning IP addresses statically, you have to go to each individual device and configure it with a unique IP address. This method requires keeping very meticulous records because problems can occur on the network if duplicate IP addresses are used. Some operating systems, such as Windows send an ARP request to check for a duplicate IP address when they attempt to initialize TCP/IP. If they discover a duplicate, the operating systems will not initialize TCP/IP and will generate an error message. Recordkeeping is important because, not all operating systems identify duplicate IP addresses.
