MAC Addresses and Reserved IP Addresses

Jan 12, 2013 at 5:31 PM

Hi Chris,

Congratulations for your excellent software.

Do you plan to add, in the next version, the ability to reserve an IP address when a MAC address is recognized ? It could be useful in some cases for servers, or even some appliances that do not manage hosts file.

Thanks in advance,

Virtual Router uses the DHCP functionality that is built-in as part of the Internet Connection Sharing functionality of Windows, and I have not found a way to use the API's to reserve IP Address's. Currently, I don't think it's possible.

Hi Chris,

"Connectify" is another product based on WHN and it seems they have featured the IP address reservation thru MAC addresses.
Maybe you might want to add your own code and manage a new "Settings/Preferences" button which would open a GUI to ask the user to enter a list of MAC addresses and their IP reserved ones ?
Maybe also something to imagine in this interesting DHCP freeware that does the IP reservation : http://www.dhcpserver.de
