IP and MAC Binding

When the device is configured as a DHCP server or for DHCP relay, you can bind static IP addresses to up to 100 network devices, such as a web server or an FTP server. Binding does not assign an IP address to a device. You should ensure that each device bound to a static IP address in the IP & MAC binding table is configured to use a static IP address.

Typically the MAC address of a device physically appears on a label on the bottom panel or back panel of a device.
