OPen Dns Ip update program

Hi Shane

   I'm behind a router. My dns settings in my computer and my router are open dns settings. By using your static Ip program would i need to run open dns's ip update program, and is it recommended to use a static ip address when your behind a router?

The open dns is keeping an eye on your internet IP, not your local. So no worries there.

The only reason to setup a static IP on your computer when behind a router is for port forwarding. If you setup port forwarding rules that point to your computers IP, you dont want the IP changing on you :wink:
