Mr. Peelman:

Thanks for asking for the info.  I have attached it in a Word Doc because it seemed easier
to do it that way then ot try to past it all in an email.

    If your router supports it (what router do you have?) there should be 
  a place where you can tell the router to assign a user selected ip to 
  the same machine every time. Every machine on your network has a 
  different (unique) MAC (Media Access Control) address. This address 
  doesn't change unless you manually change it. Show us your full 'hosts' 
  file and the LAN specific info from your router.

    In my Netgear router it's called 'Address Reservation' under 
  Advanced->LAN IP Setup. It is a list of ip addresses that gets assigned 
  to the various machines on my network, looks like:

   IP address    Device Name                MAC Address
  192.168.1.5   LINUX-SERVER          ??:??:??:??:??:??
  192.168.1.4   gfriend-desktop        ??:??:??:??:??:??
  192.168.1.2   dell2350-desktop      ??:??:??:??:??:??
  192.168.1.3   amd64x2                    0A:1B:2C:3D:4E:5F (example - 
  numbers/letters made up)

  ...of course you would see numbers/letters instead of ??.  My server is 
  192.168.1.3 and that address gets assigned to the computer that reports 
  itself as MAC 0A:1B:2C:3D:4E:5F. This info is setup right along with 
  'Use router as DHCP server?' but that is for my netgear.  Now if you 
  have this and then tell your router to port forward all HTTP traffic to 
  192.168.1.3 port 80 (substitute your info) you should have a setup that 
  survives reboots.
