I believe that it was just a mistake and there is very low probability that
it will become again. And such mistakes remain unnoticed if a person does
not complain because at the server side everything works as it should.
Changing IP address may be impossible, For instance, my home ADLS router
has ficed IP address and I am glad to have it. Other computers (allowed by
me) can automatically connect to my diskstation and send backups. Andsomer
servers allow administrative access from whitelisted IP address so without
a fixed IP address I would not be allowed to do my work. So there are good
reasons to have an unchangable fixed IP address and ISP may assign it as
