Win 98 Multiple IPs/Gateways Profiles
SCO Unix File Servers(main only), Berkley Unix proxy/e-mail servers(both locations), remote office connected to file servers through 56k dsu and router. Different IP/gateway scheme for remote and main offices. How do I set up profiles to automatically set the ip and gateways for the office my non-technical laptop users is in. I can set up for one office or the other, not both. Thanks!
The best solution I can think of would be to setup a DHCP server at both sites, then feed the correct information to the user's machine from the server instead of hand configuring. You can specify gateway, mask, ip, dns, and various other information via DHCP.
I theorize that it may be possible to setup multiple hardware profiles in windows 98 to do what you are looking to do. I've never tried to do that exactly, but I think it can be done. I would still go for the DHCP option though. Either way you go would probably take about as long to puzzle out.
yea its possible to set multiple hardware profiles on systems...
what I would do.. is just that.. have one profile say docked and the other undocked.. on the docked.. have the pcmcia card to the lan.. enabled.. and the undocked.. well the modem..if they gonna dial in.. and if they are at office or not. they choose their paths..on boot up.
