Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help. If you have other machines on your network, you can try to ping the machine from one of them using the correct IP for your static machine, of course.. Remember to choose the Motorolla as the "Red" interface. By doing this, in the event your home is in North America, you can just purchase from a North American shop. The sole reason I cancelled my trial subscription was not being able to see movies in Paris on vacation when I actually had some time. Feeling charitable, I will soldier on, but please, read this some time. And by setting the ip adress to the static one using the internet protocol whenever i figure out how to do that that does mean the lease expiration for my dchp server will go away so i stay linked to that ip indefinately? Router IP address

Once you get real names on your network, you won't go back to raw IP's. Which brings me neatly to Darran.. Though from the get-go, I'm confused, "My Mac is the host machine". Or is this something to do with Samba networking? Then, "I have a printer installed in XP". So, the XP machine is the Host, now! Anyways, I'll skip past all that and get to what looks like the kernel of your issue..

Firstly, it sounds like you have no need for either machine to have a dynamic IP. If not, then give them both a static IP instructions for both platforms, above and end the randomness! As you're running that BSD-ish box, why not go all the way and setup a local name server, use the Mac to keep everything in sync, name-wise.

Simply enable BIND, and maybe read the name page, in a terminal.. How do I know if it worked? Is there a way to test it?

So the simplest and best way to test this, is to see if it's running properly! If it was BitTorrent, or similar, then it should be pretty obvious if it is working or not.

If it's some server you find difficult to test, use my port probe. Assuming your gateway probably a router is forwarding the ports correctly, you'll get success!!! If you have other machines on your network, you can try to ping the machine from one of them using the correct IP for your static machine, of course.. Click the "Details" button for even more info.

If you are handy in the console, check out netstat ;o or. Like with the upstairs computer and downstairs computer running? The IP of the computer upstairs? What about the computer downstairs? And which IP are you looking to make static? At any rate, whatever the conditions, the answer will always be "Yes".

You simply have to configure everything correctly. In an ideal world, you connect everything directly to the router. I'm trying to set up a VoIP PBX Epygi Quadro 2X with a remote extension that I can use when I'm travelling to connect a soft phone on my laptop through a wireless broadband connection so that I can make and receive calls to my office number on my laptop from anywhere.

Despite reading copious amounts on this it seems I'm as far away from achieving the objective as I ever was. My ISP has provided me with two static addresses, one of which I would like to use for this purpose. My current configuration is in the PDF at http: So my questions are: At some stage I plan to use the second static IP address provided by my ISP to connect a server directly to the net so I can access the files it contains when I'm travelling.

Depending on the answers to the questions above, perhaps I don't need to use a static IP address. Surely the Belkin has a configuration to set this, maybe even a wizard. I see you grouped multiple questions into the single numbers - on first glance, it looks like you have only three questions.

I have no knowledge of the device, so I Google, and see that it does. Why not put it first in line? Physically connect it directly to the WAN? The Belkin is redundant in this scenario. If none of this pans out; hiring someone local might be more cost-effective for everyone I'm assuming also you run a business, with that gear than all this reading and writing. As well as near-infinitely-well supported. Though I'm told I'm rather good at speaking on them, and have turned down numerous jobs doing exactly that.

If I use a static isp can I get a dns code that works? Of course after Uverse was installed, they told me I couldn't have a static IP. Anybody have a workaround they could suggest. One of the two has a static IP required for program I need to run. I still need a static IP to run the original program. I have no idea what I'm doing. The line for the static IP is now going through a repeater rather than the PC.

I am trying to set up an ethernet converter without the disk- which says I have to set a static IP. I did it and had to undo it. I lose internet connection. What about the default gateway and alternate DNS boxes? I don't know if I should check those too and fill in the numbers you had in your example- or something else. I tried it based on the windows example. I am running xp. Oh- and I am connected to a wireless router wired and desktop for my main computer in the home.

Once I updated to a new router it now shows 2 connections to the internet- the router and the LAN. I know I can do this By the way- thanks for the great explanations- you write in an easy to read manner. Public Animal - I do not have access to the admin panel for it so I can't just keep inputting the new IP every day.

My problem is, I have set up my internet connection to use a static IP. Please, can someone help me out?? I'm getting very frustrated, especially because my friend set up this station for me as a gift. But I do need help now.

Our company creates websites and video presentations. If I create a website, I always purchase hosting services for the client. We do not do that inhouse. My client wants to keep their existing site as is meaning with their current ISP and etc but they are interested in having a separate server set up for their video archive which is all the video programs we create for them.

How do I go about that, is it just a matter of uploading video files to a dedicated server with a hosting provider and providing the correct url's to their web programmer so that when people click on a button it accesses the requested video? Perhaps your router has the ability to limit this for your XBox. And anyway, this page is about internal static IPs. Bosco , switch ISPs. Hotline , if you mean internal static IP's, sure, create as many as you want. Then, if you have a question, frame it, and ask it!

Asking for a static IP in the handshake is pointless; if you want that, you need to pay them for it. So get a dynadns. Ravi , simply connect everything to a network switch.

KAP , yes, it's that simple. Very clear and easy to understand. CS guy - I plan to run a Counter strike server on my PC.. Trouble is that when I create one,it doesnt appear on the Master server list which keeps track of active servers. I think the problem is that the static IP assigned to my PC is The people trying to connect manually cant seem to connect to it as its behind the ISP router.

Can u plz suggest an alternative?? The IP of your PC Anything at your side of the telephone line, is yours, and everything at the other side, is theirs. Your biggest problem is going to be a lack of port-forwarding. Unless you can forward the packets directly to and from the server, it isn't going to show up on any server list, or work very well. Very nice article, congrats!

I'm using a mac osx and i did everything it says in the article, the problem is that when i click apply in the network preferences, it says connected, but the internet isn't working The computer further upstream, the one that controls the network route to your computer, must be configured to allow static IP addressing.

It's not uncommon for a gateway to allow both dynamic and static IP addresses within its subnet, but the static IPs might be limited to a range between, say, You will need to check with the system admins to discover if static IP addressing is allowed and in what range; or else test lots of addresses and see if any of them stick. By the way, use netstat or the network adapter's status window to discover what your actual IP is at any given time.

I'm sure you will have noted what your machine's IP was when it was being assigned dynamically via DHCP , so if it was The chances of getting the college techs to set this up for you are pretty slim, and probably against the college rules, but perhaps not. You could always ask.

Say you only need one port , or whatever , and perhaps offer a bribe of some sort, free beers maybe. And one for me while you're at it! Bogdan , if the internet's not working, how did you manage to post here? It sounds like you are creating an IP in the wrong subnet, or something like that. Check out the troubleshooting section, and the links at the top - though this area was originally created for the viking routers, lots of the info is generally useful.

You want me to fly over and fix this for you? How to test if it's changed? Check out my post, here. Also I told you in my previous post. As for the DNS ip what does dat mean ; the local recommended DNS server doesn't have to be the same server as your gateway. Each network is different, and colleges generally have set guidelines, usually a page somewhere, about what to put into each field for their particular network.

As I said, a static IP, even a local static IP is only possible if the gateway machine allows such a thing. Even if it does, it now sounds like you have not one but two gateways to punch a hole through, if you wish to run a game server. Only they can make this possible. Even if I did fly over, unless your network is crazy insecure by default, I'd still have to talk to your network admins to make it happen.

So go do that yourself. I haven't actually tried it yet, but will definitely refer to your article once the need to change the setting arises. Please keep it up. Hi, I realy need help cause my problem is kind of special. I am living in china and need a static IP. As I need to remotly connect to a system outside china which needs a static IP that can not be changed , i desperatly need one. I tried to access some service dyndns. Any idea what I can do??????? Well, I didn't know it!

I did know about "The Great Firewall of China", however. You may need a translator to complete the sign-up. My spies in China tell me that service works. Or I may have just Googled. I need a static external IP to access a database service and getting one from my ISP is not pssible, changing the ISP is also not possible as they have a contract with the compound where I live.

After having read a lot about dyndns service, I don't think that would help me as i could be reached via a static IP, but when I want to log on to an external database i will still have my ip changed, right? They own the entire block. It provides a static domain NAME. If it's the latter, then you are screwed.

Do you know what, I must of read through countless sites in the past week trying to get my wireless connection up and running and only after reading through your helpful notes on setting the manual IP settings does the little bugger decide the work. You've made one tired and ragged little man very happy!!! Thanks so much and if anyone else is doing what they're told and reading this It's as simple as that! Thanks for the umpteenth time! I live in Spain where our service is provided by Telefonica.

I have entered my network connections as changed 'use dynamic' to 'use this IP' and entered different permutations of Have also entered the ports as exceptions on XP firewall. Have a free dynamicDNS service, but none of the above has done any good. What am I doing wrong? Internal IP assigned to gateway is One of the computers in LAN has web based application, we want to make it accessible through internet.

It also means that any attempt to change your connexion's IP will kill your internet. It also sounds like you simply need to create a firewall rule for eMule. Use the probe link at the top of the page to check your ports are being forwarded correctly.

By the way, if you are connecting through a router, then you need to ensure the router accepts static IP's i. Maybe read the article again, more slowly. Anup , think like a packet of data, starting outside, and working its way to your server, and then open every closed port you meet. I checked the port forwarding and it was a failure.

No internet connection could be established. I have created firewall exceptions for emule and have read the tutorials, without any further progress. However- thanks for all you have done - I will have to learn to live with it. However, when I go to the properties of my connection it shows two different running internet protocols. Should I manualize the settings on one and disable the other or something?

You can leave v6 set to automatic. At the moment I am too much of a "Newbie" or dumb head to understand all the jargon but I am learning the hard way. I have two computers - one running Vista and the other XP. Presently I am unable to access the internet from the Vista through the Linksys router using a hardwire connection.

I can however connect through the router to the XP using a wireless adapter. Just a few days ago I was able to use Vista to connect through the router hardwire and at the same time use XP to connect through the router I am trying to restore this capability Thanks again for the article.

Obviously, the IP address, but also the subnet mask and default gateway as well as DNS server adresses, as i expected when trying to set my static address up, this would all be written in there already and only the ip address would change. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for you help.

Also, check all your connexions and ensure your drivers and such are up to date. Additionally, if you want other to be able to always access your server from the outside, via a permanent address, check out the notes below the article, about dyndns. Here is my situation: It has 2 network card.

When I type in But I cannot get any further. Then I type in So I know the address Then I type the same address in the browser, but I cannot got anything. Browser just say ' Take too long to respond'. Please tell me what have I done wrong. This will save me many many hours of hard work. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

James Bulmer - Im looking to start a webhosting company. I will be using this for every server i have eg. I will have, free server 1, free server 2, package server 1 ect. So what im wondering is with my lan comming in, i will have one line for every sector.

Can i have a external static ip or will i haft to use a service like no-ip???? Thanks and keep the good work up. I can't even remember which things i've tried. Cant i use same static ip in my laptop as well.. James Bulmer , I cannot take your seriouse [ sic ] question seriously. You want to start a web hosting company, and you aren't sure if you need a static IP?

This is a joke, right? I've not run a web hosting company, but I suspect that there's a lot more to it than simply sticking one of those "We Are A Web Host" templates up on the web. Bertil , you do not need port forwarding to connect to IRC. The trouble must be elsewhere. What you need is a gateway device of some sort, like a router-modem. I recommend an IPCop box, or similar.

Ray Georges - I am changing carriers for our data T1 line. I would like to know where to change the external ip's including gateways, dns, etc for the new carrier? When I go to lan connections, all the ip's are internal Your assistance is greatly appreciated!

They interfere with my gaming it seems. I tried setting a manual IP on my Xboxlive connection but it will not allow me to connect after doing this it's in range of allowed IP's.

I am trying to apply QoS settings to give it priority over everyone else, I have the rules in place, but everytime I reboot the router, it dynamically assigns a different IP to my Xbox! So how can I specify QoS? Is there a way to allow individual IP's on the network to be static? Or am I going to have to set up each one individually with it's correct IP address? Hopefully you understand what I am trying to do. Is it possible for static and dynamic to co-exist through one router?

Qos probably won't help as much as you'd like it to. Instead, look into setting up a permanent lease on your router, so it always doles out the exact same IP address to the a specific MAC address i. I want to make a counter strike server but i can't because i have dynamic ip. I checked at properties tcp ip and it was obtain ip adress automatically. Don't i have to call my internet provider to give me a static ip? You think it'll work? It would be smart, though, as this is a common problem.

See the notes in the article for easy ways to get your external IP at any time. However since the WAN IP is not static sometimes the line dropped and reconnected itself the remote computer cannot be set to route to one specific address. This make remote monitoring very frustrating, any tips? We have security cameras installed at home and these are connected to our home router and through that to a wide area network our security camera provider and on to the internet.

To view remotely i. However, if the internet drops out at home then the WAN tries to assign a new IP and will not assign it automatically. But we have to reset the WAN from the home computer and not remotely - for a reason I don't understand that doesn't work Any tips or tricks?? I would get a mssg about limited or no connectivity.

When I run ipconfig to get my ip address i get following mssg: Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services for further help. Unknown media status code. Here's the interesting part: I assigned a static ip Any advise would be greatly appreciated! Yeah, stop messing around with your registry settings until you know what you are doing.

Here is what I am trying to do: There is a live camera type of software that enables user to bid on something remotely. Due to the firewall settings I have at work, I am not able to get to this application as it comes back with a message like "server unreachable".

I can run this applcation fine from my home computer. So the other day it finally dawned on me that I could use an application like VNC to start a server on my home laptop on a home wireless network with LINKSYS router and run a "vnc viewer" session from work to access the aforementioned application through my home laptop computer.

I have followed your directions and created a no-ip. I can see my ip address and I can ping my laptop by either IP address or xxxxx. The only problem is I cannot ping this address from outside my home network. I vnc'd into my work computer and try to ping my laptop from there without success. I also tried to vnc from my work computer into the home computer without success as well.

I also tried your "simple p2p port probe" with a bunch of ports 1,2,80, I called my ISP provider and I need a total revamp of my internet connection: Your help is greatly appreciated, Vali As I've often advised, here and elsewhere, these problems are best tackled with the sinple strategy; "Think like a packet of data".

If you do, you will realize that you the packet is bashing its head off of your outside firewall. Open some ports, dude! George Aidam - I think you need a new ISP. If I want to connect to my office computer from home using Remote Console how do I get it to find the public address and then get inside the NAT to the static IP I have established for the office machine? You simply find the external IP or dyndns. Simply setup a port-forwarding rule. This page is about something else.

Timothy Misiko - It is connected to my router. After 5 days I got it working over the internet. I then went to stay at my grandparents house. I was worried that it had broken. The next day I rang my parents and asked them to check the ip address. I noticed it had changed! How to I keep it the same.

What do I do?! Scroll up to the top of this very page, where there is an article explining it. Your information did the trick! PPPoe Settings are what im using. I want to set my ip as. My router requests the true gateway of the ip adress im requesting not my routers.

Are you really Italian or Sicilian? Dark Royale - My question is, how to prevent these behavior? I'm really concern regarding this matter. Hope to find answers here.

This is perfectly normal, as I stated in the article, above. It's total shite and wildly overpriced. Anything else you'd like to know? My ISP says they do not provide them. Therefore, 1 is an external IP address my only option and 2 how do I get one? I read your article and most of the forum, but still feel confused re whether or not I need an external IP address.

While this sounds like a generous enough offer, the idea that you would need a static IP to work with some web host is completely ludicrous. I advise you politely decline, and seek hosting with a proper web hosting company; they are quite cheap; certainly cheaper than forking out for a static IP. I'm using a dsl router to a netgear wireless adapter , many thanks.

On Windows, I recommend uTorrent. Either way, yes, you need a port open, and yes, you need a static IP on your local machine the one running the BitTorrent client. See the article, above, for full details. It's for the voyager , but mostly applies. As I like to advise, "think like a packet of data", and just follow that packet from them to you, open whatever ports and forward them to your machine, as you go.

As well as a static internal IP address so game data packets can find you via some port-forwarding , you need to tell the game servers your external IP, right? That is the only time it should cause problems. If I were a game player, this would be as good as a static external IP, pretty much. Other than that, I recommend pestering the game creators to allow the use of dynamic host names like myhost.

Then there would be no problem. Why they haven't done this already, like a decade ago, I do not know. Hosting a game server - It should not be necessary now, let alone in the future. In the future, one would hope that proper host names would be allowed anywhere IPs are now required except perhaps extremely secure setups , and then the actual IP address is irrelevant. Otherwise, what was the point of creating the DNS system in the first place? I am using BT Internet, if this helps your answer.

Many thanks in advance, Colin No, this will not increase the security of your admin - if I wanted to get around your IP ban, I would simply attack from via a local proxy. Even if that weren't possible, security by obscurity is not a sound strategy. Instead, use a proper authentication system, with passwords, perhaps over SSL, or use pajamas or something. The only situation where IP security is useful, is where you have a fixed, static external IP. But even then, the IP part could be spoofed, and some other authentication mechanism would still be required.

Your first problem is that you are running the netstat command directly from a Windows Run command. When it's done, the window closes. Not a lot of use if you wanted to read the output. Instead, run "cmd" no quotes , which will open a DOS box. Either way; once you have a DOS box open, then you run the commands. As for hiding your IP address; the only way to do that effectively, is to use secure proxies, or tor, or something along those lines.

This isn't the place to get help with that, though. Your second problem, is that your spelling sucks. Until you master it, consider Firefox, with its built-in spell-checking. My own spelling leaves a lot to be desired at times typos, like you , but those red dotted underlines quickly fix that. In theory, the two are identical.

In practice, you may get better performance from a static IP address, though you would need to check with the users of a particular ISP to discover whether or not it was a change worth paying for. Raghunath M - We told them that we already had a network set-up here and they didn't need to install a new line.

They however sent out Comcast to install a line to their equipment here. The tech spliced into our line before our router and connected a new line to another router then to their equipment.

Is this a usual charge for a static IP and shouldn't their be a reduction in charges for one or the other services for using the lines in our house? We already pay I can't comment on whether or not this kind of thing is normal, though I do think it is a form of extortion.

Anyway, surely your wife's company is paying for this, so it's not a problem. Finally, now that you have this static IP, why not ditch your old dynamic line and use the static IP line for everything? And it would be easier I'm sure but what I need to do is be able to print from a remote location to the printer at the firehouse. For mission critical use, yes, I would advise you get a proper static IP. In most scenarios, this isn't an issue; in a minute or two, everything is back to normal.

In other scenarios,"a minute or two", could be the difference between life and death. My catalog page as of now is using this revolving ip address that change every so often.

I know that they are high in price ATT that is: Threatening to switch to another ISP; I have found; will get you an instant reduction in any price.
