Q1.Perhaps someone could explain that with "always on" connections with broadband why there still exists dynamic IP addresses? I wish to access my network remotely and there pay extra for a Fixed IP address and yet I note that those on a dynamic service seldom, if ever, see their IP address change. So is the fee for a fixed IP a rip off?
Q2.Over the last few days I have installed a very basic CCTV system, the pictures from which I will view from a remote location. One of the stepping stones to achieve this is for the CCTV control box to have a LAN fixed IP. No problem to do that and care was taken that it was outside the DHCP range. But it made me wonder what the difference was between a LAN fixed IP or by allowing the device to pick up a DHCP address and then binding it to the MAC. Both methods give a fixed IP address to the CCTV or am a missing something here?
Thoughts on this matter would be welcomed.
