How to change networking config for portable
Posted on 1998-04-16
I have an HP OmniBook 3000 with a Xircom 10/100 baseT and 56K modem that is regularly moved between various networking environments. The main environemts are:
1. Main office: 100baseT behind firewall, static gateway and IP address
2. Home 10baseT: simple access to shared printers & drives
3. Home Modem to Work: behind firewall, static gateway and IP address
4. Home Modem to ISP: no firewall, dynamic IP address
To add even more fun to the mix, there are three geographical instances to #1.
My questions is: What's the best way to reliably and simply move my portable between these networking environments. I've found a simple suspend / resume often crashes / hangs. Cold restart is time-consuming.
What should I do?
