[thelist] IP numbers

Hi everyone

Just a quick question regarding IP numbers (if this is too much off
topic, my apologies, just ignore this)

I'm not too sure about static/fixed IP numbers.

Here is the situation:

Someone has left an 'anonymous' comment on one website.  The IP number
is recorded for all comments.  The IP number matches a comment that they
definitely left on another website.

They are denying that they left the anonymous comment.

If the IP numbers are the same, does this mean that it was the same
computer that both messages came from?  Or, could that IP be allocated
to another computer in the same city?

Many thanks
