Non-Static IP Hoo Boy

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by Lawrence D'Oliveiro, Jul 7, 2009.

  1. I was setting up a server for a client's overseas branch. I wasn't actually
    there--I talked the IT guy through doing the initial Debian install, setting
    up the static internal IP address and routing, and NAT forwarding through
    their ADSL router, to the point where I was able to log in from here via SSH
    and finish the job.

    Over the subsequent few days, their public IP address was changing at least
    3 times a day. At one point, it changed twice during a single phone
    conversation. Luckily I had set up a system for the site to automatically
    keep the head-office server informed of its IP address, so when I lost the
    connection due to an address change, I could reconnect after at most 10

    Can you guess which country they were in?
