Dynamic Internal IP

Is it necessary to set Internal IP's as static with AWS?

I don't use AWS much

So I certainly can't give a totally conclusive answer. But I've never done it and never had any issues (other than tklapp.com domain names being slow to propagate on reboot - but I'm fairly sure that that isn't anything to do with internal IPs).

Are you experienceing some strange behaviour that you think may be attributed to that?

Trying an experiment now

I only ask out of interest because when I run confconsole on an AWS I see the internal IP setup and its always dynamic. I tried changingit to static and... nothing!

Obviously it does not affect the external IP and everything is backing up properly.

Just wondering if AWS provision their internal IP's as dyn or stat, no other reason.
