    Default URLs

    Hi All

    Probably a pretty basic question. Sometimes my computer is downloading a "Windows update"?? and I can see via the dialup modem status box that I am connected to a specific IP address eg 203.211.23.23 How can I trace where I am connected ie can you trace the IP address to a specific site? If so how? Am to hold my hand to my heart & hope that that massive update is really from the MSoft giant or can I really check to see that I am not connected as a zombie? I have ZoneAlarm as a firewall but would like to know where I am connected on occasion.

    Also if I am connected to http://www.whocares.com how can I convert / see what IP address number eg 203.210.23.20 I am connected to?

    Thanks in advance

    Probably an easier way but if you are using XP - open the Run box (Windows Key + R), type cmd and ENTER.

    Once in there type "nslookup www.pressf1.co.nz" for instance...

    this will display your server name and ip and Press F1s server name and ip

    According to PingPlotter the IP 203.211.23.23 goes to
    Target Name: 23.23.211.203.dynamic.ttn.net
    IP: 203.211.23.23
