NIS and dynamic IP conflict

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Deborah Harper, Nov 9, 2004.

  1. I have a wireless laptop that I have been trying to set up in a network with
    my desktop and printer. I know this isn't rocket science, but I have been
    having problems. I have Norton INternet Security and it keeps blocking
    access to the desktop. What I have done to remedy this is to go into NIS
    and add the IP of the laptop as friendly. But my laptop is set to dymanic
    IP addressing and every time it goes dormant I am blocked from access to my
    desktop again. I am thinking I need to set a static IP on the laptop and
    add it to NIS. If this is the best way to handle this, how do I do this?
    And if not, what do you suggest?

    Thanks,
    Deborah
