So I got some ram from a friend and thought that I should install ubuntu on my old machine. So I installed ubuntu 16.04 on it and soon after this I decided that I want to make a file server out of this. So I asked a friend for a crossover cable.
I configured windows to have a static ip4 address and ubuntu to use dhcp and it worked for a time and I even got windows to share the internet connection.
Until I restarted the windows machine, thats where the problem started. Now I am search for the problem since 2 hours I tried various settings but nothing worked so far.
I changed the IP adress of the windows "server" but it didn't work.
It only works with a static ip adress on both the windows and ubuntu machine. Then the samba fileserver also works.
But I really want to get it working with DHCP.
Does anyone know what my problem could be?
