Since if you switch the default you are also most likely have to switch the DBC (from server to local) and other files which are essential in your application. In that case you will also need a synchronisation between your local data and the data on the server. Things need to be updated the other way around when DSL is again on.

Provided that the "server" machine is getting dynamic IP addresses, you can still use UNC path by simply replacing the IP address with the name of the computer acting as a server, as that computer unit name won't dynamically change along with the IP Address.

So instead of:

\\192.168.0.1\yourprojectfolder\yourapp.exe


You can use UNC path this way:

\\NameOfTheServerUnit\yourprojectfolder\yourapp.exe


With this approach, it won't matter whatever the IP address that "acting" server unit will have any time. Your WS will always find the proper path for you app.
