Quick DHCP question
« on: August 14, 2007, 08:16:46 am »
I am not using this Hybrid 0740 machine as a DHCP server, therefore I disabled it. However it still is showing up as 2 IP Addresses. One External and one internel, along with the 127.0.0.1(localhost) name router.

How do i make my machine use only one IP address. (I don't want Boot over net, this is the maaster station)

Thanks!

having 2 ip addreses does not mean that you have dhcp enabled. it's just an ip allocated to that card.

did you get your question answered.  127.0.0.1 is the localhost or i call it the local loopback.  It's the first sign that the tcp/ip protocol stack is properly inialized. Thats a good thing.

are you connected to a router or directly to your broadband modem?  What's youir ip address?

do you have two nics?

I just didnt understand why MCE is trying to setup 2 IPs with one card, especially since I turned off DHCP server on the MCE machine.

I think im good though.

127.X.X.X is for localhost use. Its only to verify TCP/IP stack. 127.0.0.1 is the typical one you will see. Any computer will get replies...wait...ill rephrase it...any computer with a correctly working TCP/IP stack will get replies from any 127.X.X.X IP. It doesnt even go as far as the NIC. IDK...just for general info ;)
