Well the server in my town assings dynamic IP on each new connection. So you always get a different IP. Is there a way to have a permanent IP even doe in my case.

Not unless you purchase one.  

If you never disconnect from your ISP you will keep your IP, but you need to check with your ISP as to what their policies are.  Most ISPs will disconnect users for inactivity.

Best way to get a permanent IP is to get a xDSL/Cable connection.

There are services which give you a permanent HOSTNAME which is updated to point to your new ip address each time you run a program (usually as part of your dial up procedure).

One such service is http://www.dynhost.com

sorry gsoldado,  I understood your question as to wanting away to get a pernament IP not reporting your new IP to a service that will point your changing IP address to a host.

Dorwards solution will get you there.

Here's another solution if you're hosting your own web server - it's a free application from Deerfield called DNS2GO - it's a small app that runs on your server and automatically updates their DNS servers with your new IP should it change. Whenever someone types in your domain name their (Deerfield) DNS server will automatically direct them to the correct IP address. You can slso get it to redirect to an alternate address should your server be down.

This is useful if you have a cable/dsl modem and your ISP supplies dynamic IP's and you'd still like to host on your own machine.

Hope that helps.
