My home computer has dynamic IP and I am connecting to it from a different using
RDP. using service like no-ip and dyndns for pointing hostname to dynamic ip.

The ip address of the computer can be changed by going to the router's setting page.
But when I try it from the client the connection is lost..
I would like to know how to change the IP address of the server from this client computer without losing connection to the server?

And are you connecting remotely from within your LAN or outside?

If outside, you must forward the appropriate port (3389 by default) on your router to the private IP of your RDP server. While you are at it, assign a static private IP to your RDP server and reserve that same address in the address pool on your DHCP server. You will need the MAC address of the NIC on your RDP server to make the reservation.

Once you change the IP you will have to reconnect.
how do I change ip from the client ?

By IP address I mean the internet IP address assigned by the ISP
not the local one
