Hello
I have a router which has no windns option. Is there still any other way in order to give this router or the server connected to this router in the lan a static public ip address?
Thanks

A WAN IP address has to be purchased from your ISP. You can do anything you want on the LAN side.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

Well, I saw there is a dyndns client software. Actually I installed it in the server. But the problem is that even though it gets a static ip, the dynamic ip that this software is taking is the internal server's ip. However, I'd like it to take the external router's ip. Is there anyway to change this?
Thanks

Your terms are a little confusing. When you say..

internal server's - Do you mean the private IP like 192.168.x.x
external router's ip - Do you mean the public IP like 99.99.99.99 (or what ever your ISP is assigning your router)

If you want to put a Static Public IP on your WAN side of the router then take the address assigned to you by you ISP and turn of DHCP on the WAN connection and enter the IP address and subnet given to you by you ISP.

If you don't have one assigned and do not want to pay the extra amount for a Static IP then you can use a proxy site which will require you to install an app inside your private network that will send the current dynamic IP to the proxy host so that you have a virtual Static IP. A lot of the Free Domain Name Hosting sites will give you this ability. Just Google Domain Name Host and pick one.

Yeah, you got me right.
With internal I meant private ip.
Anyways, I tried by installing dyndns client and the result is that the IP which is made static is the server's private IP but not the router's public IP. How could I change this?

I have never used "dyndns" before but there should be a way to configure it to use a MAC Address to get the IP. You will need to configure it to your Router's WAN MAC. You can find this in your router's settings.
