SMS under DHCP Network
SMS under DHCP Network –
IĀ“ve a dhcp network at home, and pluged my ps2 to it.
But I canĀ“t make SMS contact my PC.
Should I use the ipconfig.dat file thing (itĀ“s on the sms manual)?
PS2Reality connected fine, but that thing just sux :S
As far as I know, the IP is standard 192.168.0.10 I guess you've tryed to ping it yet?
Hi. What do you mean by 'standard'?
Here, the IP goes from 10.1.1.2 to 10.1.1.10
why itĀ“s this way? Dunno, but works great.
there isnĀ“t anyway to set those at SMS?
I believe you have to config a file from sms. But I don't know which one cause I've never had to use it before Maybe it's in the sms manual from Dave_t? Otherwise, there are a lot of other members who can help you
ipconfig.dat is the only thing I founda at the manual.
but I didnĀ“t understand how to use it very well.
iĀ“ve burned a disc with sms, and run it on my matrix infinity modded ps2.
well, right now I am at work, so I can't try anything right
IPCONFIG.DAT is the proper file to change, as described in the manual. But you are going to have trouble connecting to your PC if the IP is dynamically assigned by DHCP. In other words, your PC won't find your PS2 if it keeps jumping around each reboot. You might also want to configure your PC to use a static IP. This can be done while other devices on your network still use DHCP assignments, but personally I'd make everything static. Static IPs are also better for some security related setups. Get that working, and you'll understand the IPCONFIG.DAT better.
> What do you mean by 'standard'?
Most homebrew applications (e.g. SMS, uLaunchELF, PS2Link) pick a default PS2 IP of 192.168.0.10 because many consumer routers have a default gateway of 192.168.0.1 (I have 2 routers with different defaults, and it looks like you do too).
If you want the quickest way to likely get your setup working just follow
You can also edit the IPCONFIG.DAT on your PS2 using the setup in uLaunchELF. There can't be any major problems with your network if you got PS2R working.

thanx! that`s what I wanted to know. Well, this could be a nice feature to be developed on the next revisions of sms (beeing able to change the values of ipconfig.dat at the sms menu)
haha, i did it!!!
so, i decided to save this file ipconfig.dat on my mc, and I wanst on the mood to burn a disc with this only file. So, i decided to install ulaunchelf to copy this file via NA (yes, i didn`t have ulauchelf installed yet :S). configured the network and... then I realized that it saved the exactly same ipconfig.dat file
so, to run sms, if the ps2 ip changes, all i have to do is lauch the ulauchelf, and edit the network config there.
ps: i like my dhcp network because i have less work to do when someone brings a computer here, or anything else
I have a Zoom router in my home network, it is configured to use DHCP too and the IP range is 10.0.0.xxx (almost like yours) and I don't need to go to uLaunchElf and change it everytime the PS2 IP changes... infact it doesn't change cause even if u have DHCP enabled u can attribute fixed IP's to the machines in your network (respecting the IP range used by the router) as long as u use the router's IP as the default gateway and the same subnet mask. I do this with my PS2 and it works.
Try using the following IPconfig file:
Create it with LaunchElf if u prefer, but it should work anyways
10.1.1.20 255.0.0.0 10.1.1.1
Nevertheless, an option to edit the ipconfig file "inside" SMS would be nice, something like the uLaunchElf.

Neven knew that about DHCP
But, I have a DHCP network overhere. Every computer connected to it get's the ip from the router. But I always keep the same IP, don't mind if I reboot or not. Well, doesn't bother me anyway. I have the ps2 good connected to the network and everything works great.
I can even surf using my keyboard+mouse and linux for the ps2
PS, it's connected like this. Router>hub>ps2 (my pc is on the same hub)
I even have an extra cable ready if a friend of mine brings his ps2. Connect to that cable and we can play trough the network against eachother (I have 2 tv's)
