Static IP

The idea of a Static IP sounds good and useful, but I'm a bit worried about security.

Could someone outline the security issues for me, of using a static IP address please?

I'm currently using the built-in Mac OS X (10.3) firewall.

Thanks,

Mark

Static IP

Hi there,

To be honest the only security implication with a static IP is the fact that it never changes. Just because its the same everytime it doesn't make it any easier for attackers to compromise the security of your machine.
Basically if your PC is locked down with the latest firewall, anti virus software and operating system updates then you are very unlikely to receive any errors.

Hope this clears everything up

Kind Regards,
