Q

Searching ISP addresses

One of my customers hosts a database for his employees to access. His (dial up) address changes frequently. Is there a way for his employees to search a range of his ISP's addresses to find his server?

Your best bet is to use a dynamic DNS service to allow your customer's employees to find his server. Your customer's...

server will run a small program or script that reports IP address changes to the dynamic DNS server, ensuring that DNS always has up-to-date information.

There are several dynamic DNS providers offering services for free or a nominal fee. If your customer doesn't already have a domain and doesn't want to get one, some services, such as DynDNS, will provide one for him.
