I have a old computer running windows server back home which I use to connect back remotely, for a long time (few years) we have had a sticky IP address so I never got around to sort out something more permanent. Wish I had now it has changed and I have no way of getting the new address as nobody is currently at home to simply google it for me.

Is it possible for anyone at Spark can look at our connection and find it? Or is that something they would not do generally?

Thanks in advance.

Yes is the answer. But I would caution you that the stickiness of your IP address is about to disappear. If you need something more permanent, I would suggest you apply for a static IP. PM me if you want your current IP. I will need your line number and account number.

Either apply for a static IP, or set up some Dynamic DNS.

Nope. Just making some optimisations to our network.
