    I know somebody that have remote desktop setup and instead of using and
    static IP address for each computer. They are using one IP address and a
    different port for each computer. I know that the port number is defined in
    each registry. They are using DHCP and the address for each computer is
    obtained automatically. What command would you use to redirect the DHCP IP
    address to the static IP Address? I know somebody doing this and they are
    using a rule in the firewall for the port number. Do you set up the redirect
    in the firewall rules also? Curious to know how this is being done. The
    server operating system is Windows Server 2008, workstations software is
    Windows 7, Windows XP.

    Perhaps this "person" has a firewall that can direct packets to specific
    NetBIOS names instead of IP addresses. I would ask him how he does it and
    what firewall he uses.
