TCP/IP over AirPort

I have two OS9 machines that are already connected by airports, with one being the base station, and I was wondering if I could have them use TCP/IP. They would use Ethernet connections but one of the ports is not functioning. Regardless, the TCP/IP Control Panel is filled with empty boxes (subnet, search domain, etc.). How can I fill them all in?

And in case anyone was wondering about the other questions I asked in earlier threads, they were all resolved, with your guys' help.

You probably want to use DHCP.

So I connect via AirPort and choose DHCP Server, the only menu to fill is "Client ID".

What do I tell it?

IIRC, just leave that blank. I don't believe AirPort base stations require it (most WAPs/Routers don't).

Yes! It works!

Most things use AppleTalk, but there's always Civilization.
