    turning off DHCP?

    If you are looking at changing to static IP addresses on your network then turn off DHCP and then on each computer add a static address, subnet mask and default gateway. (private network)

    If you are looking at having a specific port open (e.g port 80) to the outside world then set up port forwarding.

    If you are looking to have more than one public IP address then you need to enable a routing protocol - RIP


    Si vous regardez changeant en des adresses statiques d'IP sur votre réseau alors arrêtez DHCP et alors sur chaque ordinateur ajoutez un passage statique d'adresse, de subnet mask et de défaut (réseau privé) Si vous regardez ayant un port spécifique ouvrez-vous (par exemple port 80) au monde extérieur installent alors le expédition gauche. Si vous regardez pour avoir plus d'un IP address public alors que vous devez permettre un protocole de cheminement - DÉCHIRURE

    Sorry my French is no good...

    why do you need to disable dhcp just asign it what kind of crap is that you NEED to disable dhcp i use both and it works just fine .. just set ur network card manual.. and that is the end of it unless you got more then one accesspoint you might want to consider dhcp relay then but still.. anyways .. no need to disable dhcp

    Whist turning OFF the DHCP server is not an absolute requirement it is in some cases advisable.

    A) to make sure a static address is not given another PC by the DHCP server while the PC you have setup for the static IP address is not connected.

    B) if someone manages to wardrive onto your network having the DHCP server OFF makes it a lot harder as they have to figure out a valid IP address as well as all the other bits they have to pass to get onto your network.

    So you are both right but I would consider dribble's method to be the better one, unless you need the ability to have pc's connect via DHCP that is.

    you could for instance set a dhcp range .. like i do i set a router, ap range , server range , client range < dhcp and i set that range in the dhcp server lets say from 100 - 255 simple .. that way your clients can never get a server ip from the dhcp

    * ok it might be considerable to do it the otherway, but it is not what he is asking he wants to know how he can assign a static ip to a client/server answer simple assign it on ur network card .. set the gateway dns and that is it
