How can I force a local static IP? Setting up MySQL Server for XBMC

#1tspirtle2Posted 5/29/2012 5:21:11 PM
I'm following this guide:
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=HOW-TO:Sync_multiple_libraries/Setting_up_XBMC

Notice on step 2, it tells me to enter my local IP of the computer running MySQL. In my experience, local IP's change occasionally, correct? So will I have to change this config file every time my local IP changes?

For the record, I'm using Verizon Mifi, which occasionally turns off/resets (which may be the cause of the local IP change)

And just in case I'm headed in the right direction, this is what I've figured out so far:

Is that what I should be doing? What should I enter in those boxes? I don't want any conflicting IPs

depends on your router and what you have it set to, but yes, you would enter something like

192.168.1. 88
gateway 192.168.1.1
and then use something else other than .88 on your other devices

Will I run into any conflicts if this is the only device I have set to use a static IP? Would the router try to assign other devices to this IP?

No, it knows you gave it that IP, so it won't use it for DHCP.

dont set it as a number that it would try to assign for DHCP,, if it the dhcp numbers start at 192.168.1.100, dont use 103 as your static

Just to clarify:

My router (Mifi, in this case) settings show that the DHCP IP Pool is 192.168.0.100 through 192.168.0.254. So I could set this computer to .255 and not have any worries?

That is incorrect. The only way it would remove that address from its DHCP range is if you set it up as an assigned dynamic IP (where the client is still configured to request an address and the DHCP server is set to assign the same address to it every time) or the DHCP server is configured to probe an IP before assigning it to a client. Most home routers have the capability of doing the first, they rarely have the second.

I would just go in your router and assign a DHCP reservation.

255 is broadcast so you can't use it.
