Statics over Cable modem connection

Statics over Cable modem connection

How would i go about setting up a static IP over a cable modem connection. I have 5 statics from my cable modem provider and need to get my other machines to see them from other locations. I mean is it simple enough as setting a static on a local network.

RE: Statics over Cable modem connection

IF your ISP provides you with 5 static IPs:

set it up this way:

ISP --- cable modem --- hub/switch

with all 5 machines plugged into the hub/switch.
then set each machine up with the desired static IP.
