I have Internet Connection Sharing enabled on a Windows computer that's hosting the Internet connection. I have manually assigned what IP address to be used with the DHCP service on the host by changing the value data for ScopeAddress in registry. (See Microsoft KB article 230148.) That address is now 192.168.120.1. The client has address 192.168.120.247 right now. (This had to be done because the default value data 192.168.0.1 caused an IP conflict with my router.)
The connection is working and everything, e.g. the client has Internet access. But the IP address keeps changing. So I would like to set a static address, i.e. reserve an IP address for the client, on the DHCP server side, so that it always gets the same IP address when negotiating. How do I do that? Is there a yet another registry value for this perhaps?
This is on Windows Vista, but it also applies to Windows 7.
