I would like to assign it a static IP but restrict that static assignment only to that machine, so other wireless devices that get added to the network get picked up right away, assigned a dynamic IP and are good to go (wireless network is encrypted so people need to authenticate).
Ideally though, I would like the single server in the basement to be statically assigned an IP so I do not have to keep updating my SSH, hosts, etc on my Windows machines that I use for development.
Is this possible? What do I modify and how?
Code: Select all
Can someone explain the steps? Sounds like I must configure my router to start DHCP IP's at 192.168.1.2 and upwards...using 192.168.1.1 for my server? How does the router know the IP address 192.168.1.1 is going ot be used for a server though?
I don't want to enable port forwarding, as I don't want access to my server from the outside (just yet anyways).
