      You have described exactly how it works now! Congradulations. You get a gold star...

I am sorry. That was mean. Currently, IP addresses are leased or owned by an ISP, and they give a temporary IP Address for dial-up users.

Mind you, some ISP's can let you have a static IP address, but it will cost someone. Having static IP's for non-static hosts can be problematic though.

If I missinterpreted, please clearify.
That is exactly what you did; missinterpreted.
Off course I know ISP's give temporary IP's and that is why I proposed that.

This should be something like ICQ, user should log on after they connect to internet (with their temporary IP to a static address).
This may be a solution. At least a thought.
Is it clear?
