I have a NetGear WNR2000 wireless router, and I'd like to be able to hardwire a server to it, and have that server host a number of things: Subversion, Artifactory, Jenkins CI, and maybe a few others. Basically, it would serve the role of my personal "build server" at the homestead.
The problem is, in my software I'll need a reliable (preferably static) URL to hit for working with this build server. For instance, my Artifactory server might live at:
And in Ant buildscript, I need to hardcode that URL in order for my project to build correctly.
Not being a "network guy", what options do I have at my disposal? Static routes come to mind, but I've never set one up and am not even sure if that's the right solution. The server will be whatever is the newest release of Ubuntu Server.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
