Winip allows Internet users to access your computer via a static
host name (e.g. mycomputer.thatip.com or mydomain.com) even though you may have a
dynamic IP address. This lets others access your computer the same way
every time, instead of having to enter a different IP address every time
you reconnect to the Internet. This lets others access your web, file, or other server the same way every time, instead of having to enter a different IP address every time you reconnect to the internet.
With WinIP, your machine will get a fully qualified domain name. Even if your computer's internet address is dynamically assigned, people can connect to your machine's FTP, WWW, IRC or other server by using your single hostname, recognized on the entire Internet. WinIP can manage multiple hostnames pointing to different IP addresses.
WinIP 3 runs on Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 98 and Windows ME. WinIP is compatible with the ThatIP dynamic hostname service.
