Hi there Paul,
The short story is **we do not support static networking** (right now)
in the install version. We only support DHCP. I've been reluctant to
implement static networking, as the setup is as complicated as setting
up wireless. And I've seen plenty of people struggle with wireless,
which in turn has given me support nightmares. :-)
There are cheap access points that allow you to configure your static
IP in WAN and have a NAT local network. Deploying one for your
Webconverger deployment would save us all a lot of pain!
However I did spend some time looking at implementing this. We could
take the ip= code from
And incorporate it into
Actually I did test the ip= with the current Webconverger live version (26).
removing "skipconfig" and appending
:: works and I verified
this by using "debug".
Confusingly I think the ip= interface changed later in live-boot.
So you could workaround by using the live version, but you would
basically need to build an ISO with that configuration and you
wouldn't get updates.
Otherwise you could convince me to support static IPs. Static IPs
which I believe don't scale & are terribly error prone. Which are an
absolute pain to support and just generally a bad bad idea. Though I
could be missing something.
