    piCorePlayer 4.0.0, full network configuration

    Long time SB user but an absolute linux newbie..
    Trying to get PcP + LMS working on restricted network without DHCP so i need to config the network (permanently) manually with;

    IP
    Mask
    Gateway
    DNS1
    DNS2
    NTP

    Searched on the net but found nothing that i could use (i guess because the lack of know how on my part)
    So any help would be apriciated.

    You need to find these parameters for the specific network that the Pcp is going to operate on.

    The DHCP server usually transmits these to the Pcp instance so you will have to ask the network owner/manageer for these parameters.

    You probably won't need NTP as I believe OOTB Pcp uses ntp.org

    Out of interest how will you set these with no network ?

    Jeff

    Its not linux knowledge either most of these parameters are needed for any network device no matter (within reason) what OS you use.

    Hi Jeff. I know all the parameters, most off them I can make my own choice. It's just that I don't have access to the router and I have to deal with the proxy. I do have thorough knowledge of networks 😉
    Just having a problem to implement that knowledge into a core Linux environment.

    So type your settings into the GUI and you're good to go !

    hi edwin2006,

    Looks like you might need to setup a static IP via "setup". Plug in monitor and keyboard and type "setup".

    Can't quite think how you can get to with web interface without a network

    regards
    Greg

    He could setup a temporary DHCP server on say a laptop and then fix the settings in the GUI

    I've got a network. Challenge is getting a proxy setting in the pcp. I did find the static network config via GUI. But there is no proxy setting or am I missing something?

    Proxy servers settings are software configured, primarily for Web Browsers. pCP/LMS will not function in a Proxied environment.

    LMS itself does have an option to define a proxy to be used.
