    I was talking to my son in Iraq in MS Mesenger the other day. The connection was terrible and it disappeared several times. He has that problem often and always has to sign on again. His connection is on a satelite which is licensed to someone there in Balad. He is on night shift and is able to connect in the day time local. Is there a way to capture his address and signal to aid in talking? He is not able to use skype or video due to little or degraded signal at his end. I do not think he would be able to get a static ip address. I am only going by my limited knowledge of windows. Thanks for any help.

    I don't think you will have much luck. I suspect the military have good comms but personal comms will remain very poor for quite some time.

    cheers, Paul
