I want to submit a fact that occurred with me and I want to share with you to see how to avoid lost connection with the Nethserver instance…
I configure the network with a static IP address( i.e. 192.168.200.1 ) and configure a DHCP server to distribute a range of IP (192.168.200.100 to 192.168.200.254 )
Now, I go to change the static IP address for 192.168.2.1… If I go to the configuration / network module and edit the ip configuration, I will lost the connection because the DHCP server will continue to distribute the older IP range.
You will tell me it’s easy to change the client IP address temporary to reconnect to the Nethserver instance, but If the client is a WIFI client, and the AP point is in the DHCP range… The connection is really lost.
I will make the suggestion when there`s a DHCP server attach on a static IP address. When a static IP address is change, to check the DHCP server to eventually change the IP range too.
