I am using CoRD to connect my Mac to a PC on a home network.
A dynamic address is being assigned to my PC every time I switch the router on/off.
For example:

At the moment I have to reconfigure the ADDRESS field CoRD each time. I would like to know if there is any way to avoid this inconvenience.

  • Assign your PC a static IP address within the subnet of your router. (Start -> Run -> ncpa.cpl -> select network adapter -> right click, properties -> IP Version 4 -> Properties -> and make the change there.)

  • Use any DHCP reservation capability of your router to always give your computer's MAC address a given IP (different depending on type of router).

  • See if you can enter the computer name in the field where it expects the IP address (not sure if it will work with CoRD but worth a shot)
