Q

Do we need a static IP to connect to the Internet?

I just setup a Microsoft 2003 SB Server using 2 NICs. We have dynamic DSL IP. The DSL modem has DHCP enabled. Is it possible for users to connect to the Internet or do we need to have a static IP? If we can use the current configuration, what the best way to do that?
Users can connect to the Internet through the 2003 Server; just enable Internet Connection Sharing on the link connected to the DSL. Then set all clients to DHCP.
