Robert - I must take issue with your comments.=20

I have been running an internet service for 2 years here in Houston =
texas, and we handle 128 tele lines. WE DO NOT ASSIGN IP ADDRESSES =
UNLESS PERSONS REGISTER A DOMAIN AND THEN ONLY FOR A VIRTUAL HOST =
ADDRESS ON A WEB SITE.

When you call our number, we connect you to one of several terminal =
servers. These terminal servers are ip-addressed in order from 100-228. =
When the individual dials up using his ppp client, the ip address of the =
port is loaded automatically into his client software.

ALL INTERNET PROVIDERS THAT I DEAL WITH DO THE SAME THING. A Class C =
subnet isn't enough addresses to frivelously give out to people and the =
internic is being more-and-more gripey with regards to who can have =
additional class-c subnets.

Address. If they don't give you an IP number I would give them the AXE. =
