I regularly use a remote desktop connection from a Windows laptop to a Windows desktop. I now have an iMac and was able to setup a remote desktop connection to the desktop. However, the desktop has a dynamic IP address that changes each time it powers up. So, the next day, I needed to manually change the IP address used by the Mac. I tried to switch to a static IP address but it isn't allowing it. The laptop works with a dynamic IP address. Is there a way to make an iMac work with remote desktop using a dynamic IP address ? Or, what is the trick to getting a Windows 7 setup with a static IP address ? The error message on the PC is along the lines that there is conflict (with any of several static IP address that I've tried) and it's not allowed. Thanks for any input !
