Don't know XP & your IP ad. will change. Try running WINIPCFG it's the W98 program that gives it

PS - with most dial up, ip address changes each time you connect.

Go to "Command Prompt" and type IPCONFIG. Hit return and you'll get it.

Certainly with freeserve (and just about all dialups), your IP addy is dynamic, i.e., different each time you connect - simply because there aren't enough IP addresses for everyone!

Not too surprising now that some fridges and bus stops have IP addresses...

Lú-tzé, i tried that ipchicken on two different machines and it gave the same ip address for both it would appear that is the only address it can find, yet ehen i ran ipconfig form the command propmt i got something else, norton says no unopened ports, ipchicken says there are. has anyone else tried this chicken or is it a turky, (just a joke here)

Open a command window and type ipconfig

This will give you the ip addresses of any adapters that you have installed and connected on your machine.

ipconfig /all will give you more details, including your current DNS servers etc

not sure if it would work or not, but yoy can double click on the connection icon in the bottom, and you should i think be able to find your address that way...
