Hi,
I am relatively new to freebie trading and I have one doubt.
Is it ok to use a dynamic IP while completing offers bcoz I have heard that the sites track us through IPs.
So anyone please help me out.

Dynamic IP addressing assigns a different IP address each time the ISP customer logs on to their computer ( read it on whatismyipaddress.com biggrin.gif ) so I don't think you can do offers.... Same name - same mailing address - same IP. Any change of one of the three in this chain and you are in trouble. Yes, people get married and change their names or move and change their address ( mailing and IP) And in these situations it would be ok to continue doing offers( if you inform the sites you are working on ) . In your situation, you will get banned for multiple IP use, if not right away, eventually.

Is there any way you could get a static IP?

Most Internet Service Providers will assign you a static IP address if you contact them and request it.

Hi ,
But I just now talked to a owner Of an IFW and he said that it's fine to have a dynamic IP.
Can you double check again and answer please.

Interesting...
I just IM'd an owner of multiple IFW networks about this and asked him about the dynamic vs. static IP address & whether or not it would be a problem when he checks accounts to verify IP address with address and phone number information prior to approval. His answer:

"There is really no such thing as "static" IP's with 95% of internet service providers. Almost all ISP's are dynamic, and subject to change your IP address at their whim... Turn off your modem for a couple hours, and turn it back on. You will be assigned a new IP address."

As a rule, even with his ISP it shows him at varying locations within his home state. Ironically, he said it's never actually assigned it to the town where he actually lives. Mine does the same thing. So it is safe to say that as long as you are always logging on from home and still show the same ISP & general area, you should be fine. smile.gif

cable, for example, is dynamic IP. the problem is with mobile/WiFi (not your in-home network, but your internet service). they are not specific only to you, like your home cable service would be. they are considered public access and the chances of another freebie site user showing the same IP address as you at some point are much higher. e.g., mobile internet service directly to your laptop wherever you are, or "hotspots" or shared computers in libraries, coffee shops, college dorms, hotels.

look at the pinned threads at the top of the Offer Discussion area of the forum and you will see one about "Doing offers only from home". check it out for more detailed info. and check with the freebie network you are working with to be sure what they require.
