hello guys ! i have a little problem and i need help !

By mr.jean.paul.aa ·
i have a small internet cafe of 8 desktops and a desktop server , connected to a switch , and a internet connection router which has a cable from a port connected to the switch too
so there is internet connection on the 8 pcs and the server pc
i am using an internet cafe manager to manage the 8 from the server one
everything's okay
but my problem is that the internet cafe manager works in a way that isnt comfortable with me
i have to write the server's ip on each pc , but the server ip is changing every day , so i have to open each pc and change the ip to the new server's ip every day so i can manage them from the server , which is awful ,there is a way to keep the ip the same no matter if the router or switch or pc is shut down ? somebody can help me ?
Thank you ..

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".

However in the Meantime you'll need to also tell us how the LAN is configured and why you have chosen not to use Static IP Addressing?
