The problem is you set the static IP address using
/etc/network/interfaces, and your node is also running the WICD
The problem is that wicd is not set to ignore the settings in
/etc/network/interfaces, and it happily overwrites them.
So, if this sound familiar (or you have the static IP assigned in
/etc/network/interfaces), you need to remove wicd.
apt-get remove wicd-curses

Thank you for the suggestions
I will check
The PI has no wifi adapter
sometimes cache DHCP connected devices so the same
IP can be assigned when they reconnect. You are
probably seeing an inactive DHCP record. That record
will probably go away eventually unless the device
reconnects via DHCP again.

I have a weird problem with my Pi
I have it set for static IP on
eth0 as boot up default ex. 192.168.1.118
When i boot the node and look at
the connected devices in my router, I see the
192.168.1.118 static device.
However there appears to be a
second DHCP address assigned for the node as
well, ex. 192.168.1.44
Anyone have a clue whats going
I have my ports open
to 192.168.1.118 and everything
Why the 2 IPs?
