Static IP address and it configuration


S

SANTANDER

We get static IP address and its unclear how this need be configured. Small
LAN - 6 computers, that connected to 8 Port Switch. Switch connected to
router PC(Unix based). That router PC get internet connection via Ethernet
cable (from ISP). This PC router have another static IP address. The
question is how to configure (and what configure) in such a way that use our
IP address independently from another IP address that have this PC router,
i.e. we need that our IP were independent and did not prevented/mix with
another IP.

THANKS

You enter the ip addresses and computer names in the file HOSTS.

You make sure that all computers have identical copies of this file.

It is you job to insure that the ip addresses that you entered do not
conflict. This is not a simple job once you have very many computers, and
the difficulty of maintaining the various HOSTS files is the reason for
DHCP.

What HOST files you mean - HOST files of our LAN PCs, or in the router PC?
(this router PC has also another LAN connected). What need be configured in
that router PC itself? (this router PC is out of our LAN).
And you mean static IP, not locals?

thanks.
