    Ok, so I'm trying to set up a static IP address for a program... I've been following
    http://www.portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Belkin/F5D7230-4/Soulseek.htm
    and
    http://www.portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm

    ~~Note that the premise of this thread isn't about p2p.~~

    I followed each tutorial to the period, but the only problem I'm having is the DNS servers. In the example on the site, there are two listed. When i do ipconfig /all on my computer, only 1 server is listed therefore I'm not able to fill in both "Preferred DNS server" and "Alternate DNS server" What should I do?

    I'm pretty sure everything else is fine though; the configuration of the virtual server, the creation of a static IP address.

    If screenshot's are needed, I'll be happy to supply.

    Thanks!

    Nothing! The "Alternate DNS server" is only there should the first fail; mostly your system should not need to fallback to the "Alternate DNS server". You can get by with just the "Preferred DNS server".
    You can of course search the web for suitable DNS servers, simply pick one and use it as your "Alternate DNS server" should you still feel you really need to complete the second box!

    Indirectly it is... I will wait for a mod to confirm, but I have seen other posts that was indirectly involved with stuff that this site does not want to be involved with.
