I am working on highly specialized test equipment in a university lab. I am communicating to the equipment via TCP/IP on a static 192.168.0.XXX subnet. My laptop and various pieces of equipment connect trough a switch. Also, I can connect to the university internet access (no wireless available in the lab) using a dynamically assigned address.
I can configure my NIC to communicate to the equipment or the internet but not both. I can’t use a router because university policy prohibits it. I can’t have the research equipment get addresses dynamically because that too is prohibited. Is it possible to have both static and dynamic IP addresses on one NIC?
