I would like to know what IP address my ISP assigns when i log on. i know it changes with every logon, thats OK, but I need to know what the current IP adress is.
Using both XP & Win98

Thanks....John

In Win98 (dont know about XP), there is a program in the windows directory called winipcfg.exe. Run this after you have logged on and it will show you your IP address. It's useful to make a shortcut to this on your desk top , particularly if you use NetMeeting and you want to give your IP to a friend who want to call you, rather than going through an ils server.

Goto Start>Run, and type: winipcfg. Hit Enter, and the IP Configuration tool will open telling you your IP address.

hi John,

to find out your IP address in XP open a cmd prompt and type 'ipconfig /all'

Bugger, when I use 'ipconfig /all'
a dosbox appears for a split second, then disapears, so Im none the wiser.

How do i get the dos box to stay up?

Ive made a small batch file
ipconfig /all
halt
But that hasnt stopped the DOS box from disappearing.

Thanks in anticipation...
