I am trying to connect a netBooter to a computer with a static IP address. The instructions in the netbooter ( http://www.synaccess-net.com/support.php ) say that I can connect the netbooter directly to my computer via a crossover ethernet, but that my PC must also be on the same subnet of 192.168.1.0... so I am not sure how to rectify this problem as I cannot change the IP address of my computer.
Apparently, the netBooter can also be hooked straight into the LAN using DHCP, but once I do that, I am still not sure how to get the computer to be able to communicate with it.
Here is a link for the pamphlet that comes with the machine: http://synaccess-net.com/downloadDoc/NPStartup-BXXX.pdf
any and all help is greatly appreciated!
*edit - The computer I am trying to hook up to the netbooter is forced into having a static IP address by the group that owns the computer, I am not completely sure why.
