Setting Fixed IP in WHS 2011 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to set a fixed IP address for my WHS 2011. However when I complete the configuration and click OK WHS complaines and opens a "Fix" screen which proceeds to return the settings to "obtain an IP address automatically. So how do I set a fixed IP address?

  • Can you force your router, if your using DHCP, to always assign a specific IP address to your WHS box?  That is one way to do it.
