I am probably posting in the wrong section, but silly question here:

If I set us IIS in my administrative tools, where do I go for a static ip address so I can run a very moderate ftp server? Currently, as my area does not support dsl, I have a wireless link to my friend's shop and I then share his dsl. So, my service provider is to all intents and purposes, not the place where my domain etc. is registered, but in this instance, good old Telkom. Any ideas or is there any software I can get to emulate something - I just want to share some of my stuff with a basic ftp.

Thanks

you can get a dynamic dns fowarder service like dyndns.org or tzo.com. It will update the DNS records to show your currrent dynamic IP address, thus pretty much making it like you have a static IP. I use dyndns and it works great and it cheap cheap cheap. I have also used tzo.com and it works great also.

Thank you - I got the TZO running and I've assigned an IP address for myself, but I am unable to connect from another pc. Maybe I should load up something like Bulletproof as I am only using the Windows XP IIS options in Administrative Tools. I have Bulletproof but I will also give your programs a try.
