I always just use 192.168.0.0 but of course if you prefer 10.0.0.0 then use that. It really doesn't matter. Just make sure the entire LAN is setup the same way.IP address: (I know that there are ranges of private ip addresses, I know what they are, I'm just trying to see what is most popularly used).
With Class C(private) networks 255.255.255.0 is always the netmask unless you are sub-netting(which I will not get into).Netmask: *is it always 255.255.255.0, or are there other numbers that can be used? *How do you determine what the appropriate netmask numbers are?
Network is 192.168.0.0 or 10.0.0.0Network: *is this your ip address with 254 on the end?
AFAIK 192.168.0.255 or 10.0.0.255 is the broadcastBroadcast: *is this just your ip address?
If this box is connected to the internet, either:Gateway: *is this also just your ip address?
A. It gets it gateway IP from DHCP
B. You use the gateway IP provided by your ISP.
Otherwise, if it's a client, use the servers LAN IP.
It will either get it from DHCP, or you use the information provided by your ISP. On the client, if you run DNS or Caching DNS on your server, you can use your servers LAN IP.Primary DNS: *what goes here? *I will be setting up my box to dial-out to my ISP.
