Configure TCP/IP

Notes
Choose dhcp or fill in a static IP address for your machine.
If you are unsure which to do, look at the "Installation Help" below.

Installation Help

  • DHCP
    This is where a IP address and hostname get assigned to your machine for a limited time. Most laptops work this way, where you just plug in your computer and you automatically are on the network. Most cable modems use dhcp, but not all networks have dhcp on them. Check with your network administrator to find out if you can use DHCP or not.
    If you will be using DHCP during the install, you do not need to figure out your IP address, it will be detected and used automatically.
  • Static IP address
    This is where a IP address and hostname get assigned to your machine and never change. Many desktops at companies and laboratories work this way. Check with your network administrator to find out if you need a static IP address, or if you can use a DHCP network address.
    • The IP address (supplied by your Network Administrator).
    • The network Netmask (supplied by Network Administrator with the IP address).
    • The network Default Gateway IP address (supplied by Network Administrator with the IP address).
    • The network Primary Name Server (supplied by Network Administrator with the IP address).
