definig your internet IP address

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am trying to find out how to get the Internet ip address is on a particular

Computer when connected to the Internet by a wireless router. The reason for this is I would like to be able to access my desktop computer for my ibook when I am elsewhere. Before I purchased my router I had a USB modem connected to a windows xp pro pc and you could find your internet ip address by clicking on run in the start menu then typing "cmd" then ok and then typing "ipconfig" and then you can use the internet ip address to connect to that computer. But when you are connected to a router it doesn't show up in the command windows it's shows up in the router settings window as WAN IP but that ip is for the router, so I need to find out how to define my computer WAN ip when it's though the router for mac osx and xp machines.

 

Please help! :) Thanks

you are just trying to find out your incoming IP address... is that correct?

 

http://whatismyipaddress.com/ or just look at my signature below.

 

Note that not all ISP's provide a static IP address, and that if it is dynamic, it will change randomly. I pay my ISP an extra 5 bucks a month for a static IP address, which allows me to run a reliable ftp server that doesn't change.

the widget is cool, but i prefer much more BwanaDik

it shows both local and external ip, and it copies them to clipboard with a single click. And it takes up very little space, wich is good.
