The extracted file contains the the file JIPXt_task. Copy this file into the JIPXt directory.

 

Explaination:

After performing the above task.

The file JIPXt_task has no any scheduling function and hence will depend on the system task manager configuration.

When the task manager execute JIPXt_task, it will start, check for IP change and then stops. If there is any change in IP it will update your IP automatically. If there is no change in IP it go back to sleep quietly.

 

IMPORTANT:

If you decide to use JIPXt_task. First; Configure JIPXt to suit your profile then close it and your system manager do the rest.This is because  JIPXt_task will now use the configuration files of JIPXt.  This will depend on the time interval you state in task manager. Please use a minimum of every 15 minutes. This will minimize unnecessary band waste
