how can I access my net IP number if I am accessing the net via a home LAN (internet connection sharing). I am using win98. Using winIPcfg only gives me my network IP.
Any help appreciated.

more info please!
It is almost impossable to gain a picture of what your setup is, let alone diagnose why the hoosygiggle isn't right on the whats-a-me-call-it!

I am running win98 on my PIII600. My flatmate (WinME) is connected to walkerwireless highspeed and is always online with a fixed IP.

We are connected on a 2 computer LAN using a RJ45 cross-over cable. Net sharing is done via Internet Connection Sharing. On my old dial-up setup I could use winipcfg to determine my online IP for things like games and Netmeeting. Now I want to know what my IP is as I am accessing the net via the LAN connection to the host computer.
