I have a Rasberry Pi connected to my Windows 7 LAN port, which gets internet via "Wifi sharing" (ICS) enabled in my laptop. The only problem is every time RPI boots up, a new IP is assigned dynamically by the server. So, when ever SSH/VNC access is required for Rasberry Pi, I check the IP assigned to Rasberry Pi from the display and use it (usually in 192.168.137.x address range). Many times, felt the need to get this assigned IP info even with out display.
I tried to figure out cmdline method to configure and get the client IP details from my Windows 7 labtop using netsh or ifconfig /all cmd. But both methods were not convenient.
Hence would like to assign static address for my rasberry pi? when tried this solution its not working as expected(see this link). Not sure whether this method work out, as not sure windows build in server will honor this static request.
