Can I get a route through a static IP on a proxy?
Question by Elz: Can I get a route through a static IP on a proxy?
I need to access a restricted FTP server and to do so I need to provide them with my IP. Unfortunately my ISP don’t provide static IPs so any one that I provide will only work temporarily. Is there any way to use a proxy with a static IP to access the server or am I misunderstanding how proxies work?
If not, can you think of any other way around this problem?
Thanks for your help.

If the FTP site allows you do do it via a hostname / domain name you can go here – http://www.dyndns.com – setup a dynamic domain name through them that points to your dynamic IP. Download the software for your PC to keep your domain pointing to your dynamic IP whenever it changes.
