With Static IPs
Authored by: EatingPie on May 30, '06 02:18:50PM

With Static IPs, the broadcast address, as listed in the hint, most likely won't work. So you need to find your broadcast addy! Just type the following:

ifconfig -a

This gives a big list. Under either "eth0" or "lo0" you will find an entry like:

en0: flags...
...
inet xx.xx.173.212 netmask 0xffffffe0 broadcast xx.xx.173.223
...

That xx.xx.173.223 is my broadcast, and it does the trick when I ping it.
