A static IP address allows your computer (or other network device) to have a permanent public IP address and MIT hostname on the Internet. This is useful if you're setting up a server or other device that you want people to be able to access remotely.
Static IP addresses are only available on the wired network and can only be used within the building they are assigned to. This means a computer configured with a static IP address assigned to Baker Hall will only be able to get online in that building. You will still be able to access the address/hostname from outside of the building it is assigned to. More information about IP addresses can be found at the following IS&T page IP Addresses, Host Names, and Domain Names IP Addresses, Host Names, and Domain Name.
