How to add a public static IP Address to a server running private static addresses
Posted on 2010-11-30
I have Cable Internet and DSL both having dynamic addresses i.e. configured by the DHCP. I am thinking of having a static IP address because I just bought a domain from Yahoo Small Business and would like to experiment with web hoisting. I have heard that a static IP Address is much better for Web Hoisting. However I am a bit confused at what will be the configuration because I also run a server machine machine with a private IP Address of 192.168.0.50 and other machines have IP static addresses 192.168.0.51, 192.168.0.52 etc etc but having the preferred DNS as 192.168.0.50. The gateway is 192.168.0.1 the DLink 825. If I get a public IP Address from my ISP where will I put the IP Address in the computer or in the router. How to synchronize with my Private Ip addresses? The Server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and the client machines mostly Window Seven. The static addresses are configured on the adaptors using Internet Cable router because to me Cable is easier to configure than DSL.
