    Set external IP to static?


    Hey,

    I was wondering if there was any way I could configure Ubuntu 9.10 in the networking configurations or anywhere to set my external IP to a static one?

    I have already set the BT Home Hub v2 DHCP to set my internal IP to static but could not find anything for the external/network IP address but for things that I want shown from the outside of the network, I am always having to use a different IP every time the reconnection is restarted or something which gets quite annoying.

    Is this possible or would it have to go through the ISP, BT?

    It would depend on your ISP.

    most ISP will not supply you with a static IP, you would probably have to upgrade to a "business" connection in order to have static IP

    you should set up some dynamic dns instead, DynDNS.com: Free DNS Hosting, E-mail Delivery, and VPS Hosting
