I downloaded Tor and it runs great, maybe a little too great. It is always changing IP's from Europe to USA and back. Unfortunately, some websites have caught on to this action and I need to setup a link for the IP to stay constant via one relay. How do I set it up to do that?

Thanks for any help in this matter.

You can't do that. This is the mechanism used by TOR: it bounces all over the world from one IP to another. It may change IPs in one second or after a couple of minutes. However, for static IP, you might want to try a VPN solution. CyberGhost VPN is an excellent example to be used in your case with static IP.
