Internal IP settings in Server Setup
Posted on 2016-09-27
This is a newbie question but I would like it answered. If you are setting up a server for the first time and you have connected your server to the internet and you plan on having your server be both the dhcp and the dns server for the network, does it matter what IP scheme you use? That is, is there any relationship between the connection between the server and the internet and the IP addresses you set up for the network? If I have setup a connection to the internet with my server and I set a 10.0.0.1 as the static IP for the server, then set dhcp to hand out addresses between 10.0.0.5 to 10.0.0.100 to connected computers, there is no relationship between that internal setup and the external connection to the internet correct?
