Also, remember that there is nothing to say that AOL members will even have the same IP during a browser session. IP rotation with AOL members is an issue to remember.

    I'm surprised by this. I've never used AOL but I know my sister has an account and regularly uses both AIM and more significantly MSN Messenger. If her IP is constantly changing, I'm wondering how these comms protocols manage?

    Cor! Like yer ring! ... HALO dammit! ... 'Ave it yer way! Hal-lo, Mister la-de-da. ... Like yer ring!

      It wouldn't be that her computer's IP is constantly changing, but that the proxy AOL sets for http requests is actually a host of machines, each with it's own IP. So a connected user will have the same IP when doing FTP, AIM, or anything that doesn't go through the proxy.

        That makes sense, Thanks.

        Nah! Your thinking of Simon Templar, originally played by Roger Moore and later by Ian Ogilvy
