Dynamic ip

Answered
Hi all

Hoping someone can help.

I'm running a VPN and constantly having to update the IP address as it changes so often (twice a day or so).

I was under the impression (maybe mistakenly) that a dynamic IP would only change when the modem was powered off.

Is this not the case?

Re: Dynamic ip

It can change any time that it cycles it connection,

Cable internet is more stable with its Dynamic IP and holds more, but the NBN connections I have worked with have changed theirs up at least daily.

 

You can have a Static IP added if you needed it, though I think it is a $10/m charge...

Re: Dynamic ip

I suspected as much.

It was really good, but over the last few months has got really bad.

Might have to fork out the extra tenner.

Thanks

I guess if it saves you time updating everything all the time it might be worth the $10... Smiley Happy
