We have subscribed to a service that needs static IP authentication. We are about to shift to a new location, and we are uncertain of our changing IPs all the time. The requirement from that particular subscriber was urgent. So we gave our website's static IP to them for authentication purpose.
Problem Statement: I have to download hugh amount of data to our office locations(at changing IPs via that static IP).Please suggest as to what should I do. Somebody suggested me at a coffee shop earlier today That I should write a script, and that shall handle it pretty well. I am completely blank as how to start.I'll appreciate comments and suggestions.

So you're connecting to something that expects you to be connecting from IP address X, and if you connect from IP address Y it won't let you download? And you're moving from address X to address Y? Or to addresses Y1 through Yn?
Then I would say you have two calls to make. The first is to whoever will be providing your new IP address(es), so you can find out exactly what the situation will be. Possibly in this call you can arrange to have a static address. The second is to the service you are connecting to, so you can tell them what the situation is going to be. It's possible they can accept a range of IP addresses to authenticate you.
(At work we have two trading partners for which we have to go through this process every time we get a new proxy server.)
If after that you still have a problem, then you could start looking for technical fixes. I don't think that servlets come into the answer at all. Unless I have completely misunderstood your question.

Actually it's leased line. So the IP is static. Let me see if i just implement socket client on My Website, and try access it ...Just like a ftp..
Thanks a lot dude.
