SBG10: IP Address Reserve Setup

« Go Back


How do I reserve an IP address to a client in my SBG10 gateway?
In certain cases, it is best for a client to receive a particular IP address from the SBG10 and always keep that address without having to manually configure it in the client.  This can be accomplished by reserving an IP Address to a client's MAC address.  When the client disconnects and reconnects to the SBG10, it will receive the IP address that it has been assigned.

It is recommended to setup an IP Address Reserve for clients that are configured to use Port Forwarding or DMZ.  This document describes how to reserve an IP address to a client connected to the SBG10.
