    Are the people who want to connect in your local network, or outside of your router and firewall? The answer depends... so please click edit and tell us where they are. Please don't use Add Comment as old comments can get pushed off screen when new comments are posted. – K7AAY Jun 12 at 20:13

Since you mentioned it being a server and public IP, I'm going to assume you are talking about accessing it outside of your local network. In that case, to get a static IP you'd have to talk to your ISP about getting one. Or as heynnema mentioned, using a dynamic DNS service so you don't have to worry about remembering your IP in the first place.
