Is their a way, or perhaps an application, to make a PC a temporary DHCP router?
For example, I want to connect an embedded PC to an existing network that uses only static IP addresses.
This embedded PC is setup for DHCP and therefore will not be able to obtain an IP from the server, and will eventually default to 169.xxx/..
The MAC address of the machine is unknown, so ARP commands will not work.
The embedded PC has no monitor, mouse or keyboard. Only a VNC program is used to administer the machine.
Lets assume that the PC I am using does not have internet access.
If I where to connect directly to the embedded PC with a cable, is there a way to have my machine issue the embedded PC an IP (within a given scope like a router) to gain access to the embedded PC and then change it to what I need the IP to be?
Is there a way to determine the IP of the embedded PC using only the 2 computers and a cable?
