How to: Obtain a reserved IP address for a network device on TTUnet


On the wired network, devices get a DHCP lease for 30 days. As such, once a device obtains an IP address using DHCP, that address will never change as long as the device remains powered on and connected to the network. As a result, IP address reservations and manual (static) configurations are generally not necessary on TTUnet, even for servers.

If a device/server requires special coordination to use DHCP or needs to obtain a second IP address for its network adapter after the adapter has already obtained its first IP address via DHCP, an NSC may contact IT Help Central with the following information:


IT Help Central will review the request.
