    I would like to configure DHCP reservation so that my E2000 which has been flashed with Tomato E2000 VPN will assign a static IP to a new server I am setting up.

    I know just enough about this networking stuff to get myself in trouble. So I really need to find some good instructions on how to do this. Thanks!

    See the following page:

    Basic -> DHCP/ARP/BW

    I also have the following in my "WAN UP" script, but I can't quite remember why I put it there now.. "
    cat /etc/dnsmasq/hosts/hosts >> /etc/hosts"

    I don't think you have the same version firmware layout as me. Under the Basic menu I have only"Static DHCP" not just "DHCP". And in "Static DHCP" none of the other option you list here.

    Anyone know how I can configure my router which is flashed with Tomato E2000 VPN, to assign a static IP to my server? I can find no posts or instructions anywhere on how to do this.

    Well g someone just told you how. The tab for where you put that information is as bru.... told you. I would not enable ARP binding however which is on that same page. The easiest way is to hook up your server with no assigned IP, let the router assign what it wants, then use the device listing screen and select the option "Static" underneath the server's LAN MAC address. When you click on Static it will take you to the screen bru.... referred you to as well.

    I don't know why either bru.... It has nothing to do with static assigned dhcp addresses.

    Thank you for replying. As I said in my version of Tomato (E2000 VPN) from here: http://tomatousb.org/download , I don't have just DHCP under the Basic menu, I do have Static DHCP, but once in that menu I don't see ARP/BW, what ever those mean.

    I guess I should also ask if I am correct in referring to DHCP Reservation as having my router assign a Static IP to my new server? Sorry I am no network guru.

    I do see the path you suggest above here and will look into that. But where I see my server listed there are two options [oui] and [static], what does oui mean exactly?

    "what does oui mean exactly?"

    That you need to start using Yahoo or Google to learn what you are doing.

    I too am looking for a little help on this and just found this thread. The forum is called LinksysInfo.org, but perhaps it should be called LinksysExpertsWhoDontWantToShareInfo.org? I have been an active member of internet forums where I often found myself helping those with less experience regarding a particular topic. I used to get a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction from using my experience to help others and watching them improve their own skills and understanding. I guess it never occured to me that there would be other people who would enjoy lording it over the less experienced and getting a kick out of snubbing their requests for help. It takes all kinds I suppose.

    Stuart, you may feel to air your grievances on the world, but please keep them to yourself, it only breeds more flaming and this is nor helpful for the overall running of the forum. Suggestions are fine, but in the correct forum/topic but changing the website name now is not an option. thanks for your comments but please be reminded, Linksysinfo is not responsible for users actions and is not part of Linksys/Cisco so helping users out is entirely upto the user community.
