Also as a helpfull hint! I use .1 thru .5 for servers then .6 thru .12 for gateways/routers/switchs then .15 thru .100 for pc's. Just easy to remember the numbers later on!

Do i do this on the server? how do i make the Component that i connect to the network pick up the static IP??

Also I was having a look around on the server, and it looks like the IP's are automatically signed, could they already be static IP's ?

As you can probably tell my knowledge on networks is non existant, but the company i work for insist that i look after it!

What "items" do you mean ? Are these additional workstations or something else.

You do not "pick up" static IP's from the server. Static IP's are assigned to each perphipal system i.e. router, switch, workstation, whatever.

The server can only "serve" dynamic IPs to members (workstations or other hardware) that makes a request to the server for an IP address..

Provide a little more info.

If you're running DHCP on the server, you can assign them statically from there if you wish (especially if it's a laptop). It's called a reservation. Basically it involves mapping the IP within the DHCP pool to the MAC address of the machine. Then the server will issue that machine the same IP address every time. If you set the IP address statically on the machine itself, you'll have to change the settings everytime you go into a different environment.

Hi guys, thanks for the response. :up:

The item that i'm referring to is a BCM device, its part of the phone system and works with the telephone call logging software that is installed on the server. The s/w requires that the BCM device has a static IP adress.

So if I understand you guys correctly, I can connect the BCM device to the network, and then on the server assign this a static ip. But how do i do this?!

Sorry if i'm goin round in circles, but networking is just beyond me...give me a stand alone pc any day...!

thanks for your help everyone :D
