No. This is essential. Without static IP you can not get jet direct to
work. The way is to add the MAC address of the client and the IP to be
given in the dhcpd.conf file. Whne you are connecting only one client
you will get same IP but this will change when many clients are
booting and the order is first come first served by dhcpd service.

PS: I know most of people do not follow email niceties (mostly they
are not aware) but if you follow bottom post/in-line post style of
email conversations it becomes a whole lot easier to carry on
meaningful dialogue and you can snip out what is not meaningful too.
Most people just hit reply button and top post leaving prior message
appended uselessly at bottom. See if you can adopt this style and
persuade others. In case you are already doing this ..... great,
spread the message.
