Dear All,

As i know ,the ISP used to provide dynamic ip address through DHCP. If i am using leased line for internet connection, in this case which type of ip address will be assigned by ISP. Is it static or dynamic ?

This depends on the provider. Their choice on this.

HOWEVER with Internet addresses at a premium even a leased line may not be a fixed address and even if it was, many companies I know put a router on that and DHCP the clients.

Dear Bob,

Thank you for your reply. If we are using that same leased line to connect our two office's router than in that case how ISP will configure it, do they will configure dhcp both side or put static ip address on both router.

Sorry, I can't find your question.

I can't guess how your provider configured this. I offered why it may not be a fixed IP and wrote that it's the providers choice.

-> I'm left to guess that your provider won't answer your questions.

That's a bad sign.

Internet leased line ??

can i know whether you are taking about ILL or LL PTP ?? If it is ILL, it will be the static IP since it is the dedicated internet line to you so it wont be a dynamic IP.
