DNS Record Not Updating

I joined a box to my domain using a static IP address (i.e. 192.168.5.11).  I disconnected it from my domain and sent it to a customer.  The customer received it and change the ip address and logged on with a domain account without any issues but the DNS record is not updating.  It's still reading 192.168.5.11 in my DNS record.  What do I do to allow the Records to update automatically if the clients IP changes.

Yes.  Customer's machine is part of my network through VPN connection.  Also "Register this connections address to DNS" is checked in the adapters advanced setting in TCP/IP DNS tab.

How is this client machine talking back to the network? Is it VPN or some other dedicated connection to the corporate network?

you should be able to run an ipconfig /flushdns and then ipconfig /registerdns to force it to update. Is he using another static IP address?
