What DHCP Really Stands for...

From some ProCurve documentation:
Control protocol detection – software that prevents Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) spoofing, rogue Dynamic Hose Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers and Spanning Tree root protection.

    Incidentally DHCP also stands for "Decentralized Hospital Computer Program"

    And VISTA originally stood for "Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture"

    I agree with the documentation, rogue dynamic hoses are dangerous and should be blocked.

    From some ProCurve documentation:

    Sorry to derail the DHCP discussion but you said ProCurve documentation. Are you currently working on those certifications? If so, where are you getting your material for this?

    I am working on my HP AIS: Network Infrastructure and I can't seem to find any published works on this. I have some experience in working with HP ProCurve networking equipment and a few free classes I found on HPs site but that's it.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
