[Server-devel] XS Help, please

Thanks for the help.
I am running version 0.5.2 (the latest stable version).
The network looks like this:
XOs connect to an AP
AP points to server box
Server box connected to VLAN
The problems I am having:
1) I was told by my network guy to set the box for a static IP address and
default gateway. I do this via ifconfig, but when I reboot, it is gone.
2) I was told by my network guy to configure DHCP for a bunch of parameters
(subnet mask, IP range). I have references about dhcpd.conf but I was
worried it was created by one of the olpc-scripts.
3) So, since the server is not set properly, the XOs can't connect to that
newly created wireless network.
The old problems I was having:
1) When we were all on the school's regular network, the XOs could ping the
server and vice versa. But the "Register" function didn't work. I don't know
if this is still a problem because I can't get the new chunk of things to
Does this give you what you need?
Is it possible to Skype sometime? My Skype username is gmanb5.
