you don't assign one yourself, persay... They are more or less assigned for you. With dialup connections, each time you connect to your ISP they give you a temporary IP to use while you are connected. When you disconnect, that IP is thrown back into a pool of other IP's and ready for the next person who connects.

Broadband and higher connections use static IP's quite often because of their "always on" capabilities. Since they never disconnect they are going to be the only ones using it and are often assigned an IP by their provider/ISP. Once that IP is assigned they can use it to directly link websites, ftps, telnets, etc to a specific computer. In order to get it changed, you would have to contact the provider and talk with them.

[Or, if you have been granted control of your own public network, you may do this directly by choosing and assigning an IP address within your "owned" public subnet to the machine(s) you choose. Beware that this means you need to handle your own "routing, switching and security (usually your own firewall)". JMH]

We can assign ip address to the windows based computer using these steps .

Click Start, click Control Panel, click '''Network and internet Connections, and then click Network Connections.'''

  1. Right-click the network connection that is connected to the private ICS network, and then click Properties.
  2. On the General tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the '''This connection uses the following items list, and then click Properties.'''
  3. On the General tab, click '''Use the following IP address. Configure the entries as follows: #* IP Address: The IP address you chose for this client (for example, 192.168.0.100). #* Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 #* Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 #* Click '''Use the following DNS server addresses, and then type 192.168.0.1 in the '''Preferred DNS server box.'''''' '''
  4. Click Advanced, and then click the DNS tab.
  5. In the '''DNS suffix for this connection box, type MSHOME.NET.'''
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK.

Any IP (Internet Protocol) address can be assigned to a Linux machine with a single step using the 'ifconfig' command. You must be 'root' user to issue this command. As is clearly illustrated by the lengthy, over complicated sequence of steps in the answer above, assigning two Internet Protocol addresses to a single Ethernet interface on a Linux host is refreshingly simple and elegant...

ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

To bring the interface up or down, in the example above, it is interface eth0,

issue the command:

ifconfig eth0 up

or

ifconfig eth0 down

No wonder Linux and it's BSD (Berkeley Software Distribution) counterparts are

running the vast majority of the web servers on the Internet, besides the fact

Linux and friends are faster, more user friendly (IMHO anyway) and of course,

far more reliable (not to mention more powerful).

An IP address is the address that uniquely identify your system over the internet. IP address is the address that does not change outside a network . You can not assign the IP address on your own.

How are IP addresses assigned from a pool of IP addresses?

That means that the DHCP server keeps track of what IP addresses - out of a pool (or set) of addresses - have been assigned. Any time a host (computer or similar) requests an IP address, the DHCP server will assign an available address and mark it, in its memory, as "assigned" so it won't assign the same address to another computer.That means that the DHCP server keeps track of what IP addresses - out of a pool (or set) of addresses - have been assigned.

What is static or dynamic IP address and IP configuration?

"IP configuration" determines how your computers IP address is assigned. A "static address" is what would be set if you want to manually assign your computer an IP. A "dynamic IP address" would use DHCP or some other form of this to automatically assign your device an IP without an user intervention and usually should be set unless you need to make you IP set to something very specific.

What are the benefits of using dynamic DNS?

"The main benefit is that if you are on a network, your router will automatically assign an IP address to each network device. That way, if there is a change in the network, you don't need to go to each computer and manually assign a static IP address."


Which IP address is reserved for Automatic private ip addressing?

I think you're thinking of the protocol used to automatically assign IP addresses? An IP address does not assign an IP address, and IP address is a node on a network where data can be sent or received. The protocol used for automatic assigning of IP addresses would be DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).


How do you remotely connect to a router?

Each router has IP address. Usually you assign IP which can be used to access your router. If you have used default settings then your router's IP address is somewhere in the begging of the address pool. For instance, if your computer has IP address 192.168.1.3 your router's IP address would be 192.168.11.1. You can type the address in the internet browser address field and access your router.

If you use an adsl modem and connected to two computer is your ip same on both computers?

No, each computer must have a different IP address. The IP addresses have to be in the same subnet between themselves, and in the same subnet as the ADSL router (or modem); I won't explain subnets here, but usually having the same numbers for the first 3 parts of the IP address is enough. For example, if the ADSL router has the IP address 10.0.0.1, your computers might have addresses 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3. If you need to add a third computer, give it the IP address 10.0.0.4If the first computer has a different IP address - and it works - replace that, instead. For example, if the computer has IP address 172.16.0.2, assign the address 172.16.0.3 to the next computer.
