How to set a static IP
« on: July 29, 2007, 07:46:12 am »

I am a brand new user to version 5.8 standard. I really like how well VL runs on my old Pentium 2 laptop. I am having a problem getting Azureus to work: it keeps saying that it is firewalled. I have turned off the firewall in VL, and forwarded the correct ports through my router, to no avail.  One of the suggestions on the Azureus site is to set a static IP.  I can't figure out how to do this on VL. Any help appreciated. Please give basic instructions, as I am linux newbie.

To add to this, I had some difficulty getting any BitTorrent client to work properly, even though I had disabled the firewall in VL (I thought). However using the SERVICE section of VASM to disable the firewall service in every run level, followed by a reboot, solved the problem. The router has got uPNP enabled, and this now works with both Azureus and KTorrent.
