[SOLVED] Static Local IP Address

When my FreedomBox restarts it sometimes gets a new local IP Address which makes it stop working because the DMZ setup in my router is pointing at the old local IP Address. How do you force your FreedomBox to use the same local IP Address every time it start. For Example, one so high that I know that no other device will be using it like


My ISP’s routeur, that I use as DHCP server, allows configuring a list of (MAC address, local IP address), so that a device with a MAC address in this list requesting an IP address will always be allocated the same local IP address as configured in the list.

I’ve seen the same for several ISPs, so perhaps this possibility is rather common.
