RE: non dhcp? and port mapping.
Authored by: skippingrock on Sep 17, '02 03:36:25PM

I am not to sure on the specifics of hooking up an XBox as I don't have one and I don't know anyone who has one.

I would assume that if the XBox would be able to be used on the Internet that it would have the ability of doing DHCP. I tried doing a search on Google for XBox and DHCP, but since I don't have a console, I really couldn't verify.

But as for you question about the hub. You would want to connect your iBook that is being the Ethernet Basestation to the uplink port of the hub.

Basically your iBook would be giving your XBox or whatever was connected to it a dynamic IP and your iBook would be getting a dynamic IP from the Wireless Basestation (unless you set it up for a static IP.)

I guess the trick that you would have to do is find out what ports that your console box uses an somehow create a path for the network to follow coming in by setting the network ports.

I don't know how to set port mappings with the software based DHCP servers on our Macs. I will try and find out and post it as a separate tip.

Cheers, Skipping Rock.
