a static IP address

In Internet there is no enough information on this subject, that is why I wrote this manual. Why all this is necessary? Let us assume, that on a virtual machine you have a web server and you want to make it available always by one local IP address (the problem is particularly actual, when you have a lot of network devices), and not by IP address, which is assigned by DHCP (in case if it ever is and turned on).

Instruction:

a static IP address

  • Click Win+R, in the appeared window type "cmd" and click ok. Next console should be opened.

  • In the opened console type "ipconfig" and to look for adapter, which we need, in this example this is: " " (Local Area Connection).

Then choose " ip " (Use the following ip address), and insert here the data which we have received from the Windows console, and in parallel change the IP address to the one that we need.

All done!
