Fixed IP
« on: July 21, 2011, 10:51:18 am »
Hey,

All my network devices use dhcp.

Nice because this way i can change whatever i want (reason of dhcp).
Not nice because i don't find the option in linuxmce to assign fix ip's.

Several things in my network must be know by their ip to interconnect internally (fe printers, workstations with shares, IP-router of KNX...)
I found out that i can add fixed ip's in /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd-extra.conf, and it works (yeahhh).

more dhcpd-extra.conf
Code: [Select]
host hostname.mydomain.net {
  hardware ethernet 00:11:22:33:44:55;
  fixed-address 192.168.111.2;
}

And then a restart of the dhcp server
Code: [Select]
/etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart


Works great, but now my question, is this the way to do it? Or will some things not work as supposed?

That's the reason for dhcp-extra.conf :)

Always nice to have confirmation. ;)

Sometimes it makes sense to add the devices in question to the database. Especially as you have to manually make sure that IP addresses in the database and IP addresses you manually put into the extra file do not collide.
