    I am currently running a Windows XP machine on comcast high speed internet and they have switched to a dynamic ip address from a static one. However, I run an FTP server on my computer that spreads religious material to people in the surrounding town, not copyrighted, as a service. However, the dynamic ip address makes it difficult to allow for a usable link constantly. Is there any way to keep it static and prevent this from happening?

    Although I am tempted not to help your religious causes I'll give you some advice.

    www.no-ip.com

    It's free and easy to use. DHCP isn't a problem.

    I am suprised that your dynamic IP changes that much. I dont think my IP address has changed in 6 months on Road Runner and it is Dynamic. I do use NO-IP.com just in case it does.
