I want to use 9.1 SuSE with Firebird as a database server in a Novell 5.0
LAN with mixed Win98 and WinXP workstations. The DHCP derived addresses for
all machines (except maybe the file server) come from the DSL router.
My question is ...
1 Is it possible to name the machine and use the name instead of an IP
address for the dbms and let the router assign addresses as it sees fit. If
so, how do I do that?
2 If no, should I assign a fixed IP address forever? (don't know how to do
The only way I know what the IP address happens to be is to restart and
watch closely the screen flies by as it gets assigned. The latest one
happens to be 192.168.0.11. I can ping it OK.
Thanks for any advice
