address 10.134.61.250 Server address
netmask 255.255.255.0 Server subnet
network 10.134.61.1 Routers start address
broadcast 10.134.61.255 WTF does this mean or do? Does the 255 have to be there or should it be the server address?
gateway 10.134.61.1 Presumably the gateway to my network,
dns-nameservers 188.8.131.52 Not sure where this server is may be an internal to the WFR or part of the WFR network in general. Part of the instructions.
dns-search home The home dir?
Questions you will have? Why the weird addresses? Because my network device is a WFR Mobile connected to the rest of the network wirelessly and hardwired to the server through a gigabyte switch.
Your next question will be: WTF is a WFR? See the attached data sheet. It's what I use for a network router. Wifi Ranger makes a whole slew of extreme ranger outdoor stuff. The switch is a Netgear 5 port gigabyte switch. One port each for: the server, WFR via it's POE and a Raspberry Pi. I have the info to setup the WFR but I am trying to set a static IP on the server to meet the WFRs requirements so I want to know what each line means or does so that I cann apply it where needed in the WFR.
I would appreciate answers in English please.
