I'm trying to set up a port forward on my home network for a small game server and have encountered a problem with assigning the forward to a local IP.
My machine's local IP is
It doesn't allow me to change the 3rd set of numbers.
In the hope to get around this, I attempted to change the local IP on the machine with:
sudo ifconfig enp3s0 192.168.0.98 netmask 255.255.255.0
As it did change the IP, it prevented me from reconnecting to the router.
The router is an Ubee DVW3201B and I am running on Ubuntu.
What can I do to somehow bypass this?
