Change IP address only switches between 2 IP addresses

Post by TheJMan » Sat Mar 29, 2014 5:38 pm

I had to change my IP address because my hosting/email provider decided to block my IP address. (I tried to install a new email client which must have done something bizarre to the email server which resulted in my IP being blocked)
I only realised that this was the case when I tried re-installing the email client after changing my IP address only to have the new one blocked too.

SO I tried changing my IP address again only to find that I got my original IP address back

My "next available" IP address is now the IP address that I originally got when I changed IP address earlier


So it just flips between 2 IP address

not very helpful

OK, crisis is averted

my hosting provider allows me to unblock my IP address

so it's no longer a huge issue

but I AM curious about why the IP address change only flips between 2 IP address - it should not count as 2 IP address changes given I'm back to my original IP address
