1x Dynamic IP (DHCP) from the ISP.
1x Static IP for the LAN (192.168.x.x)
ON THE SAME CARD AT THE SAME TIME
Does anyone know how this can be done?
I'm sure that the question "Why?" will show up, so I'll answer it right now. I have several machines in my home. I only want two of them to access the internet directly. One being this computer (WinXP Pro SP2), the other being a linux box. The rest of the machines use only LAN-IPs and connect out through the linuxbox.
The XP and Linux machines take an IP each from the ISP's DHCP server and should also have one local IP for the local traffic. On linux, this is not a problem. It was solved after 5 minutes of googling. On XP however, it's a bit more tricky, namely impossible as it seems now. Please prove me wrong, show me that it can be done.
