i have a office moving and involve a few servers using ip (e.g.) 68.11.11.12 (business account) with cox communication in orange county, ca
if I move everything and nothing is changed (all servers and etc.)  to only 1 mile.
Do you think Cox comm can keep my IP address?
In this case, we do not have to make any changes of our server?

this is highly unlikely but changing the IPs should not be a big deal what type of router do you use?

Agree you probably will not keep your IP. But the changes are minimal. I have moved offices and servers before and just plan for the IP change.

I keep a proper firewall in front of servers and all I have to do is change the firewall addressing.

You cannot control reality so be prepared for some change.

Again we don't have any budget to make a change. And that why I ask the question

??  I took me about 15 minutes to set up the firewall.

You can ask the ISP but if they say change, that is what you will have to do.

Agreed - it's highly unlikely you'll be able to keep the IP.  You need to contact COX and ask them if you can keep it.  Nothing we say is going to change their abilities or policies.  When an office relocates, the IP ALMOST ALWAYS changes.

It does not matter how long it takes. Again no budget and no one will work for free. And it is not just firewall change.

All of the website hosting, exchange server as well.

You move and change - you cannot control this.

If you cannot or will not change - stay put.

My comments come from practical real experience doing this and are certainly related.

it's still not a big deal to change ip's up date your firewall / dns for the sites and you are up and running.

Perhaps we're not communicating properly - is there something about our answers you don't understand?  

Do you understand WE are not in control of COX's policies / technology / capability?

Do you understand COX is the one who can say yes or no?

Do you not know how to change the DNS configurations necessary if they can't preserve the IP?  

Your refusal to accept what we said is confusing to me and I suspect others.  THREE people have stated with a high degree of certainty I think, that the address WILL change and that the only people who can say for certain is COX because it's THEIR network.

I do appreciate all helps here. I just need to know if cox can keep the IP exactly same when we move. We assume we don't have to make any change.

Is it sound right ?

No, It does not sound right. It would be pure luck if they can accommodate you.

John, I'm confused by why ITsolutionsWizard can't seem to comprehend our answers which are all, in my opinion pretty straight forward.  If you understand why s/he can't, please enlighten me because I just don't understand.

At this point, we've answered the question.  He's not liking the answer and seems to think it will somehow change.

do you have a dedicated connection with COX with an assigned Class c? if so it may be possible but still probably not. Here is the contact page for COX business services contact them they can tell you.
