ip address changes
« on: September 22, 2012, 12:22:53 AM »
it was 192.168.0.2 than it changed (for some reason) to 192.168.0.4

than i had to restart my router and than use 'simple port forwarding' to forward all my ports again in my new ip address (which is currently 192.168.0.4)

so moral off the story , , why does it change ip address's , , and is there anything i can do to prevent it in the future , , thanks , ,

p.s. , , i hope this is the right section to post this thread

The IP keeps changing because your system is set to get an IP from the router automatically.

So to keep it from changing on you use the static IP tool in the program to set a static IP. Then have the rules point to that new IP. :wink:
