Would you define "dynamic IP" for me, just so I can be sure I know
what you're talking about?

It sounds here as if you mean an IP address which changes with some
frequency.  Is that right?

If so, lots of ISPs (mine, for example) give me a static IP address
via DHCP, in a block of addresses of which some are dynamic and some
are static.

Or have I guessed wrong and you mean something else?
