Nothing in that about IP addresses mate.

I think it means making the address static, but im not too sure

where i used to work it was a method of assigning a 'fixed' ip address for communication between machines on a network otherwise if the settings are left at automatically detect settings the result would be a machine wandering off willy nilly trying to find a connection.
