Range of IP address for whitelist

I have Verizon FIOS - I don't have a static IP.
How can I give a vendor a list of my possible IP address for a whitelist?
I can get my current IP. But doesn't it change over time?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Ask Verizon why you have to whitelist your IP. That is their job. Are you spamming others or sending out great gobs of email?

A long time ago my ISP purchased a block of IP addresses that had been blacklisted. They had to fix it. It was not my responsibility.

I need to give it  - so they can open the IP address so I can query their DB.

Ask Verizon to be sure nothing is blocking your IP.

I have a "dynamic" IP that changes may every other year and I create tunnels to clients. Nothing is blocked.  That is roughly what you are doing. I put my IP in my clients systems to permit access.

Give your IP to your clients and ask Verizon to make sure it isn't blocked.

Unless you are not telling us something, this is a common activity and will work.

the better way to go is register with noip.com. then you can install a client on one of your computers and they will automatically update noip.com whenever the ip number changes. then you use the dns name that you get from noip.com and hot the ip number.  I have several vpn's set up this way on system with dynamic ip numbers.  Also some routers have the ability to update noip.com directly and then you do not even need the client software.

That could work, but in 10 years, I have never had to do that.
my clients are on charter and they change the IP number on a regular basis

this solution has worked great.  I use router with DD-WRT and it is seamless

Verizon says my IP stays the same till I reset the router.
So I will give the vendor my current IP and if it resets, will give the new one.
