Depends what you want the clients to do.

If you just want the clients to have IP addresses and be able to talk to each other within the same subnet, then that should suffice.

If you want the clients to also be able to communicate with other networks, e.g. the Internet, then you may wish to consider also specifying options 3 and 6.
