Dynamic IP address assignment

I was wondering about how often does my router's public IP address change?  I am programming an end-to-end  encrypted chat server for a class, and would like to test it outside of my network.  Also, is this policy going to change once TWC becomes Spectrum?  Thanks!

Re: Dynamic IP address assignment

A: you can't run a server on a residential account

B: your public IP is locked to your routers Mac addy.  If you go to a different MFG router, it will give you a different public IP.

C: don't even think of using any sort of all in one modem/router device, buy a seperate router preferably with DDWRT os on it.

D: VPN thru C:
