I am diving into Mac Leopard Server as I will be using it more. I have a copy of Leopard Server that I loaded on to a Mac book.

First question, I have set up it up at home and I want to set a Static IP to it. I am able to set a static IP but not able to resolve a webpage after.
example
192.168.0.11
255.255.255.0
GW 192.168.0.1
DNS 192.168.0.1
I am not able to resolve a web page unless I use DHCP. How can I fix this?


I do not want to set up the server as a DHCP server going forward as it will not be staying on. I will continue to allow my wireless router to assign IP address.

You could just set your router to give your Mac a DCHP reservation, with the IP you want to give it. That would eliminate the need to run a static IP.

Also, once you setup OSX Server with an IP, you cannot change it like you would with a normal Mac. You need to issue a few terminal commands for it if you plan on changing the IP at any point.
