Automatically enable and disable a router's DMZ
Authored by: digitol on Oct 20, '05 02:03:24AM

Cool hint, although unless i'm mistaken; this is like going around the block to go next door. Simply config an ip for DMZ; set the value ip high, then just change your macs ip config to the according ip when you wish to DMZ. If you give the DMZ ip .50 then you will need 50 + computers on DHCP to ever reach this "accidentely" alternatively you could set the rest of your network on static/manual config ip's.

Some routers don't allow you to use a manually-assigned IP address unless it is set to use them, which means that all computers must have them. This is quite annoying when you're using a portable and joining other networks as well.

I was offered a penny for my thoughts, so I gave my two cents... I got ripped off.
