I am having trouble doing a fairly basic task. I have a windows Vista laptop. I am trying a setup to have some information on a local server on my laptop get downloaded by a voip device.
I have Microsoft IIS enabled and wish to set up a static ip address on my laptop. The voip will try to contact the number that I wish to assign to my local web server. I know I have to set up a static ip and have attempted to do this but not sure how to enter the ip address and subnet mask. When I try to enter the ip address i get an error message saying that i need to enter the subnet mask. How do I do this?
Also should the voip unit be set up as static or DHCP.
Further to this do I need to set up my web server with the IP address?
Thanks much for your help
