Are there changes that must be made if the ISPs package is upgraded to static IP with the same IP as the dynamic one?  Also besides running ceicw, and adjusting the dlink firewall, what other changes must be made?

No changes should be required.
No other changes to the server are required.

However, you'll need to make sure all internet DNS values are correct if you are hosting mail and/or websites.

Ok well now the ISP has called me back and told me the static is NOT going to be the same.

So with the NEW static IP...where must I make changes?  Obviously on my dlink  dfl-200 firewall router, then I will need to rerun the ceicw... their exchange server is not enabled as the use POP, and their website is externally hosted...so I guess I just would like to know fromt he experts what other places would require adjustments/configuration.
You still won't need to change anyrthing. Your server will be happy no matter what your Internet IP address is.

It is my external IP that is changing.

So nothing?  When I am given a new static IP, should I be at least run ceicw?  Make changes elsewhere?
