It would also allow any one with a browser to hit the server manager  
software, if your admin user is still called admin there is only a  
password between them and your server.   If you can't enter a  static  
IP and want to be able to access the server manager from home to do  
after hours maintenance I would set the network and subnet to match  
the range provided by your ISP -- at least that way you limit the  
pool of potential hackers.
