      Private IP Question

      Post

           IP address question:
           I have dyn dns service, which makes the ip address changes that come from my ISP a non-issue.  Everything works fine there.  However, in my apple airport modem, it is necessary for me to open port 5003 for Filmaker and specify the private IP address (10.0.1……)  I was thinking this one was specific to my own network and it didn't change.  However, I'l notice my filemaker database not working on my mobile devices from time to time and upon checking, i see that the private IP has changed and i need to update it for things to work.  Is this normal?  Is there a way to fix it?  Thanks.

               One specific computer on the network can have it's IP address manually set, so it does not change.  If it is 10.0.1.100, and there are five other devices on the network, it should be safe from having another device set to that IP address.

               Change the range of IP addresses handed out to exclude that IP address (probably not necessary, but may be).
