About this task

If you are configuring an SNE for use on an Ethernet network without DHCP or DNS support, the computer’s IP address must be compatible with APIPA. View the local area connection properties of the active network connection as follows:

Procedure

  1. In Control Panel, select Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Change adapter settings. The Network Connections window appears.
  2. Right-click Local Area Connection and select Properties. The Local Area Connection Properties window appears.
  3. Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and then click Properties.
  4. Make sure the option Obtain an IP address automatically is selected. This setting allows Windows to provide the network engine with an IP address in the 169.254.x.x range when connected to a network that does not have a DCHP server.
