Change location automatically based on network
Authored by: lagroue on Jan 19, '05 03:40:23AM

An example of usefulness of such a script :

When I'm home, my iBook acts as a server for some services (like web). It needs a fixed IP, so that other computers know how to reach it.

But when I travel, I have to switch to DHCP so that I can plug (yes, I'm old-fashioned) to the network I've come to.

The disavantage is that I have to remember to switch back to "Home" location when I come back, since DCHP stills works and that I have no clue I'm not serving any more.

This is just an example, there are certainly more cases.
