How access server computer by IP address instead of computer name?
When using several computers in network accessing database located on server computer you may use computer name of the server computer in Server Name field of login window. For example, name of the server computer is SERVERNAME. But it's also possible to use IP address of the server computer.
Inside such LAN (local area network) each computer has own local IP address. In default settings of the router each computer has a dynamic local IP address. For example after router's boot IP address of the server (SERVERNAME) may be 192.168.0.102. Next time you reboot the router the server may obtain IP address, for example, 192.168.0.105 or 192.168.0.102. Therefore the first step is to disable dynamic IP address allocation. It's done in the router's settings.
Usually in LAN the router's IP address is always ends with 1. For example, it may be 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 depending on your network configuration. Open your router's administration panel by navigating your browser to http://192.168.0.1
Now on Login window press More button. Set Remote connection method and in Server Name field you may put 192.168.0.102 instead of computer name: SERVERNAME.
