H@L0_F00 Posted October 20, 2009 Share Posted October 20, 2009 My setup: Laptop (running Windows 7) - connected wirelessly to router and internet. -Wireless: DHCP, 192.168.2.x -LAN: Static. --IP: 192.168.0.1 --Mask: 255.255.255.0 Hub - connected to laptop's LAN card Xbox (running XBMC) - DHCP, connected to hub Various other systems that might be connected at one time or another - DHCP, connected to hub I was using Tftpd32 manually for a while but I decided I'd like to make my setup somewhat permanent by including the hub and running Tftpd32 at startup. Minimizing Tftpd32 to the system tray is buggy though (popping up at least twice every boot up before minimizing to tray) and the newest version doesn't even maintain the server interface I select (LAN NIC). I found this instead and I really like it, especially since it can start as a service, is has no GUI, and it immediately goes to the tray. I've got it working with the DHCP and all, but what I would like is to have my Xbox and other systems have access to the internet as well as my laptop. I read a bit about subnets and IP routing, but I don't understand everything and nothing I have tried has worked. Everywhere I've looked, people are told to setup a firewall or proxy server on the "middle" computer, but I'd rather not do something like this because I'm sure there is another, simpler way to achieve what I'd like. Using a proxy server would also mean I'd have to setup the other devices to use the proxy for all connections other than local ones. So, I'd appreciate everybody's input on the different ways I could effectively use DHCP to give out addresses, allow the networked computers to access the internet, and still maintain access to my laptop. p.s. I tried Windows built in ICS, but when it was enabled I didn't have access to my laptop from my Xbox or any other computers. I want more control over it than ICS gives anyways. Also, the wireless router has DHCP and DNS servers running (if that helps). Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
