[tor-talk] Another Hidden Service question

Does the fact that my actual IP address has changed (say my Tor client
moves from a 3G to a wifi connection), or by extension, by Tor client
has stopped and started, have any impact on the availability of a Hidden
Service I am hosting?

What I am seeing is that I can initially connect to a HS hosted on my
Android phone from a remote computer when the phone is on wifi. However,
when I switch to 3G, I am unable to connect from the same remote
computer anymore, and the same issue when I return to wifi.

I understand that HS were designed for "servers", but this research I am
doing is using them more in a client mode, similar to TorChat, though in
a manner I hope doesn't trash the Tor network or otherwise cause
scalability issues.

I am currently testing this on 0.2.4-10-alpha.
