The problem is you set the static IP address using /etc/network/interfaces, and your node is also running the WICD system.

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

Routers 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 node.
I have it set for static IP on eth0 as boot up default ex.
When i boot the node and look at the connected  devices in my router, I see the static  device.
However there appears to be a second DHCP address assigned for the node as well, ex.
Anyone have a clue whats going on?

I have my ports open to and everything works fine...
Why the 2 IPs?
