two ethernet ports
Due to a setup with a VMware VM Mac OSX server on my Mac Pro and a difficult to configure router I ran into a problem where I can't assign a manual IP-address to my Mac Pro (DHCP-assigned only). This makes sharing my databases over our network and even outside of it complicated.
I thought of using my two Ethernet ports, I can configure my second Ethernet port to have a manually assigned IP-address using DHCP. When doing so FM isn't accessible through that IP-address.
Can I somehow make sure Filemaker uses my Ethernet2-port (and its IP-address) for sharing?
My setup briefly:
- Mac Pro
- VM Mac OSX server (server has IP-address 192.168.0.50)
- OS X has Ethernet1 with DHCP-assigned IP-address (which changes on restart)
- OS X has Ethernet2 with manual-assigned IP-address 192.168.0.49
- can only connect to FM through dynamically assigned IP-address (eg 192.168.0.20)
