setting up a static ip when it's not actually a static IP may work temporarily, but you'll likely run into problems later when your IP gets assigned by DHCP to someone else.

That being said, what you're doing sound like it should work as long as you've done a DHCP request and received that IP address at some point in the last 2 days prior to the configuration. Shaw sets DHCP leases to 2 days, after which the IP can be assigned to someone else, unless you re-ask for it via DHCP.

In order to get a stable connection, you'll need to use DHCP, or pay for a static IP.

The person then can use best judgment to decide if they wish to let you know personal contact info. It's probably not a good idea to post your contact info publicly, however.

Leave is on DHCP,

Use a dynamic DNS service to keep track of your IP incase it changes.

You have just told Shaw

1 you are running a server when your service does not permit running servers

2 that you have entered a static IP on your server from the DHCP pool

3 What your IP address is so they can look up your account

Business service from Shaw, with a static IP, is very close in price to residental service - if you also have residental TV service

$79/month for 12 months for 50/5 and TV service, plus an actual static IP.

Yes, we know it works, but you shouldn't do it.
