IP address keeps changing

Hi,
I am trying to download a file but cannot access it due to a changing IP address. I am on an institutional network and one of the security features is frequently changing IP addresses. Due to working across international timezones and requiring my supervisor to hold the password the three people involved in the file transfer cannot work on accessing the data at the same time. Is it possible to access the data without entering an IP address?
Thank you for any help

Re: IP address keeps changing

That's quite broad question. And not really a WinSCP question, but rather a generic networking question. Consider asking at a more appropriate site like https://superuser.com/.
Though I believe that a more background would be needed to get a good answer.

Yes, you can access the data without specifying an IP address by using a dynamic DNS service or a hostname, which will remain constant even if the IP address changes.
