So here’s something that took me an embarrassingly long to time figure out: (Arch) Linux doesn’t like it when you have multiple network configuration utilities set to connect you to a network. In my case, a wireless network. In fact, the same wireless network for both utilities.
So one afternoon about a week ago, I found myself needing to change a Windows client’s IP settings. I didn’t want to make the walk up three flights of stairs to do it. So I Google’d a way to do it remotely, and turns out it’s a pretty easy thing to do. More and how after the jump.
