Static IP

Are there any services or software I can install on my latptop to get a static IP no matter where I am ?  
Would like to hear options for this ?

I am doing this so that I can create a rule on my server firewall to only accept connections from that static IP.

Well you can always use a VPN. As for static IP in the way that I think you are thinking it is not possible unless you carry around a cellular hotspot and pay for a static IP which I don't believe any wireless carriers do.

I would recommend a VPN software for connection between your server and your laptop. What services do you need to access from your server remotely?

ftp, remote desktop connection mainly. Sometimes I connect to those through my desktop and sometimes through my laptop.

So the server is hosting a ftp site?
What you probably want is called "Dynamic DNS"...

for more info on this service... offers both full service Dynamic DNS as well as a free (limited) account for personal use...
