How can I make a server not give up it's IP address in case of conflict?

My client's server detected an IP address conflict and gave up its IP address to the other device (someone's misconfigured cell phone), with predictable 911 business-disrupting results. I'd like the server to not give up its IP address; is there a way to make that happen? [more inside]

Please explain software-defined networking to me like I'm 5.

I am trying to get a handle on the basic facts about software-defined networking/software-defined internet exchange. Every article I find on the internet seems choked with stupefying jargon. What I want to know: What even is SDN/SDX? How does it work? Why would you want it?

Are any computer or IT certifications worth pursing?

I'm in the weird position of being halfway through a psych/programming/IT degree meant to train me as a user interface expert. I'm taking a year off to work. I want to learn more about networks, networking, and network security. I want to learn more about computer security in general, best practices to follow. I want to eventually get a non-glamorous job in tech support or similar to pay the bills until I work my way up. Are any of the current computer/tech/IT certifications worth pursuing? [more inside]
