So I have more than one external IP.

We have a game that has no IP settings.

So It only works with the default one on the server.

How can I make this program only use a certain IP?

I may be wrong, but I think you'd do this in the router. You'd want to map out your port forwarding, I believe.

Don't have a router we connect directly to the matrix.

Okay ... well, get a router or look in your modem and setup NAT.

Forgot to say I don't have a router.

You seem beyond help then... I've gave it my best shot, even asked my CCNA friend.

You've got a dynamic address and need a static address? dynDNS is the only thing that comes to mind.

Don'y know where you came up with dynamic IP...

An IP address that changes is called a Dynamic IP. Since you're talking about changing IPs...

I did not say anything about having dynamic IPs... I said I have more than one. Implying that I have 2 external IPs. I am not on a home broadband connection here :) ( Just for the record. I know what types of IPs there are.)

We would need some more information about your setup. Could you draw a diagram of how your network is set up? I'll give you an example by showing you what I have:

Also, is your internal network static or dynamic? What operating Systems are we dealing with? And, um..what exactly are you trying to do here? lol...sorry I just don't think I quite understand the question.

No need for a image. SERVER ---> Matrix

No modems no routers. Windows OS

Could I use a BAT file to set the IP lets say default is to but only for that program??

it allows you to control which network interface/ ip it has access to

Going to give it a go :)

Does not work.

I installed and made a bat but it says the command is not something.

(May 06 '11 at 21:10) Jackster1337 Jackster1337's gravatar image

to use it, you need to edit the shortcut icon and change the target

ForceBindIP c:fullpathtoapp.exe

ForceBindIP >ip address> <original target="" that="" was="" there="" before="">

(May 06 '11 at 23:48) Razor512 Razor512's gravatar image

It says The name "ForceBindIP" specified in the Target box is not valid.

hmm weird, something may have stopped it from setting it's self to be launched simply from the name, you may have to do somethilg like add its full path then a space then the ip address then another space then the path to the program you want to launch

C:WINDOWSsystem32ForceBindIP.exe "C:path to appstuff.exe"

(May 07 '11 at 15:32) Razor512 Razor512's gravatar image

Uhm this is what i figured out and it works if you get that error: %windir%system32ForceBindIP.exe hamachiip "Location of the game" You'll wanna install force bind ip by yourself with .zip it can be found on their website http://www.r1ch.net/stuff/forcebindip/ and you do it by your self by installing the 2 things to system32
