Static IP Address

It has already been noted that each network node has an IP address. If the IP address is ‘static’ then it is pre-assigned and never changed.

The FreeRTOS+TCP API function FreeRTOS_IPInit() takes a default IP address (among other addresses) as one of its parameters. The default IP address is used as a static IP address if ipconfigUSE_DHCP is set to 0, or if ipconfigUSE_DHCP is set to 1 but a DHCP server cannot be contacted.
