Configuring static IP address


M

miracle

Torrent client need open port for incoming connections, so I need open port
in Fritz!Box ADSL router for utorrent.
Do I need first set static IP address (local IP) in my PC? There is a few
PCs (small LAN) that connected to internet via this ADSL router.
We have static outside IP address. Computers inside LAN have addresses
assigned by using DHCP.
Configuration is following:

C:\Documents and Settings\User>ipconfig /all

Windows IP Configuration

Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : UserName
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown
IP Routing Enabled. . . . . . . . : No
WINS Proxy Enabled. . . . . . . . : No

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Ethernet NIC
Physical Address. . . . . . . . . : XXX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX

DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.1

Do I need set static local IP address for this PC where utorrent client
installed?
As I know, not all routers require to set static IP address in computer, but
Fritz!Box model require as I heard.

Why ask here? This is like asking a chevy group questions about your
Harley Davidson motorcycle.
