I'm quite sure by now, I'm probably the millionth person to ask this
question.... but I'm totally stumped.

I just switched to a new 'Net provider. My old had static IP's Cool! But my
new 'Net provider is dynamic! :(

Well, to be honest, I thought that White Pines (sorry Cornell, but please
read on) wouldn't have a problem with dynamic IP's, but guess what? So here I
am.

I understand now (after a little self-research) that there is a hosts file
that CU needs to see, but does anybody truly know how to set up CU (either
Cornell or W/P) to work with a dynamic IP??????

Is there a way to have my Winsock update the hosts file everytime I log
on?????

I would appreciate _ANY_ help or advice from anyone... Thanks in advance.

p.s. I had originally subscribed to this list some time ago to get started
using CU, and I recieved alot of help and got started. But know, I'll need
some more help.... Thanks -Mike :)+<
