If the ISP has provided me with a static IP that means he has not selected the Obtain an IP address automatically option.
In that case when i log in to the internet , i still get an IP which is different from the static IP but is not reflected when i execute the ipconfig command.
I have an application which runs on a PC and listens for a connection. If the IP is not assigned automatically then that PC never listens for a connection and if it is assigned an IP automatically then the application works fine .
PLease if anybody could explain me the reason behind it ?
Thanks a ton in advance
