Whenever I have faced this problem (since Windows XP/Server 2000) I have successfully used "DCHP Reservations" (other terminology may be used) to always return the same IP address (based on MAC address) to a device following a DHCP request. This gives the advantages of central management for all such devices combined with the flexibility to be able to connect a device at different locations with different IP settings e.g. IP, gateway, DNS etc. without configuration changes.
Windows AD certainly has always supported this approach. I would guess that Linux etc would be able to do as well.
If you are not in a managed domain then there are open source DHCP servers available that could be used to give the same result
Office network is mostly separated from the production network.
I have programmed some machines that were in a extra separated segment in a local LAN with only one device connected with another lan card to the otuside to exchange data with server.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
We're one week into round 2 of the Summer Fun with Arduino Challenge and 15 people have found the secret code. It's simple, fun and you could win a cool Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Starter Kit and/ or Touchscreen Display from CanaKit.
As one of our contest winners says: "Arduino projects provide valuable motivation for software developers to try their hand at embedded programming." So if you haven't already, sign up for the contest today!
I have driven in a few countries and all of them had a system where the steering wheel is on the right and we drive on the left. If anyone here has switched from one way to another, how tough it will be for me to switch to driving on the right side? I suppose on the turns I will have most amount of issues. In general, how many hours one needs to put in to get used to it.
I drive in India and if you have been here, you would know that following rules and thinking of safety is absolutely optional here.
I have driven both sides - it is pretty easy once you get going and I switch back and forth without any issue when I go back to the UK. Habit, I suppose. One time, many years ago, I did forget for a milli-second, where I was and turned the wrong way. Fortunately, a quiet road with no traffic so no harm done.
Keep your friends close. Keep Kill your enemies closer. The End
I initially learned to drive in England but have driven in a few countries that drive on the wrong side of the road such as the US.
The first time I had to drive on the right was on a visit to Germany and it took only a few minutes to orient myself although I bashed my knuckles a few time when trying to change gear with the wrong hand!
The worst time was in Corfu where there was an almost complete lack of road markings so junctions became a place of many mistakes.
Crete was interesting...
When asked, "Which side of the road do you drive on, here?"
They replied, "The shady side, of course!"
They had two lines painted down most roads between towns and the procedure was to drive between these two lines, avoiding the rough edges of the road. When a car came the other way, you would both move over to drive along one line until you were past each other. The problem arose when a Left oriented driver met a Right oriented driver and they both went for the same line!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
It's pretty easy to make the switch, but you do have to pay attention. If you "drive on autopilot" it's very easy to make a mistake: I did the first time I tried, and ended up riding a motorcycle the wrong way down a dual carriageway, because I was concentrating on getting the right road instead of the right side of the road. But after a few weeks I was fine, until I got back to the UK when the first work day I got up and rode the wrong way round the first roundabout...
Fortunately, in neither case was anyone injured or even inconvenienced: but it could have ended very, very differently.

My only experience switching sides is a week in Ireland (I'm from a right-side driving US).
I had no real problem. The closest I had to an incident was pulling out from a driveway onto a road (it would be the same from any stop sign). Right-side drivers are trained to first look left, then right, because the people coming on the left are closer to you. When you switch side, you have to remember to look the other way first -- nearly got hit by a car coming "out of nowhere" from the right once.
The good news is that if you drive a manual transmission, you get to shift with you right hand.
I've done this many times, as most have said it is fairly easy. Auto pilot is definitely not an option, keep your concentration high, you should be used to that driving in India. The corollary of that is beware at the end of the trip when you are tired.
Oh yeah if you are driving a manual wear gloves for the first couple of days, the door tends to bruise the knuckles when you reach for the gear shift.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
I have driven a lot in both Australia (left side) and France (right side).
Trying to sort out your left or right and right side to drive on can be confusing at time, particularly after a round about, when in a hurry or distracted.
But there is an easy trick. You always drive on the passenger side!
I tried that when taking my Norwegian car on the ferry over to Great Britain...
No, I didn't. But Sweden drove on the left side until 1967, and there are at least a dozen roads crossing the Norwegian/Swedish border. You don't need a passport to cross it, so lots of cars from the opposite country were on the roads in the towns near the border.
Btw: When Sweden decided to switch over, jokers in Norway reported that they would do it in a gradual fashion: Trucks and buses would switch to the right lane three months before passanger cars, so that possible problems could be detected before doing the major switchover.
That certainly is not the case with British cars. Is there any left-side-driving country big enough, and with enough cars, to justify cars of a different construction? Well, India is most certainly big enough, but I'd be very surprised if they do it different from the British! They were part of the UK up until 1947, long after the arrival of car driving.
