If your DHCP server will let you do it, assign the servers fixed
IP address based on MAC address. One other way I have done it is
to use dnsmasq as the name server for the local LAN. This works
well for small LANs, and has the advantage of updating its DNS
tables with changing DHCP leases. (It can act as a DHCP server,
or read the lease files of another DHCP server on the same machine.)
