Re: Iptables question about peer-to-peer rules

I have it set up for DHCP and that's how my friends and my mom get their IPs when they are over. I use statics for my machines though.
This is a test of the Really Sucky Email Client system. Again, this is only a test.
(Outlook is the only client that will sync with my Palm...)

It depends.. I preffer to have fixed addresses.. Since my brother runs
linux 100% of the time and sometimes I need to access data on his
computer when I'm on windows , I need to know the IP address he uses...
Also , if you want to open a service to the outside world (or you need
to open a port for bittorrent , for example) you'll probably need a
static IP... Most cable/adsl routers cant make port forwarding to
dynamic addresses.... Since I have a few services running here , I must
have a static IP...
But DHCP helps a lot , since it removes the burden of configuring all
machines on the network... Nothing is simpler than plug in the cable ,
run ifdown eth0; ifup eth0 (or ipconfig /renew on windows machines)...

OK, thanks, Pedro, for your help. I've got it working now. I'm reading everything I can get my hands on about this LANs.
