Title: Hub on a dynamic IP
Post by: shaana on 19 September, 2018, 02:41:15
I want to create DC++ network in my college. But, the problem is that since intranet in my college assignes IPs dynamically to systems. Because of which ip address of the hub PC is changed everytime. I want to create a hub which has a static IP address, so that other students have a single constant IP for a hub.

Please help me with this
Thankyou

Why to an IP? use an adress instead, can be assigned to the changed IP and done.

How does one assign an IP to an address locally? I know that one can add IP and its hostname in the hosts file, but since the IP keeps changing frequently I don't want to edit again and again. Is there any way of automating the process, i.e., hostname always redirects to my local IP?
