You keep telling me about this static configuration.

I have guessed that "ptp" is related to static configuration
and that "bridge" is related to dynamic configuration.

Understand that I don't understand anything to that stuff.

It's not the point to tell me about network technicals.

When I configured my DSL modem, and firewall router, with my
DHCP LAN (a Linux Box, and an OSX Box), I had nothing to know
about IP address, network masks, and all these stuff ...

I want to have a DHCP configuration for my ARAnyM Box.

That's as simpler as this :)

I'm not an expert at information technology, but a physicist.

You must tell me steps by steps.
