On a dual boot setup between XP and Win 7, can i use same static IP?

By Ranc ·
I have a solution running in my network that works by IP count hence i have a limit as to the number of IP Addresses that can be present in my network as long as im using that solution. I thinking of having a dual boot setup on 17 PCs between XP and Win7. I would like, if possible, to have both OSs on the same PC to use the same static IP address and possibly the same Computer name.

Is it possible?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

As long as you run only one system at a time

I really see no problems at all.
(I can't say for sure about XP-mode, but I think even a Win7 with XP-mode "implant" may act as one computer externally)
