Yes, that much I figured out. "stato" does mean state. I was concerned about
the local ip which logically should be static and wondering if I needed to
explicitly change to a static ip or rely on the fact that the current setup
always seems to assign ...70 as my ip. If I understand your comment then I
don't even need to specify the local ip and just putting in my MAC would be
enough. Is that what you meant?
