    Can mods do this?

    I need the IP of my computer at home. Can mods look at one of my previous posts and get it for me? Is there a way to get it otherwise. I believe it's something like 79.144.226.48, but when I did tracert on it, that didn't come to the right ISP. I'm trying to rdp in, but I need the correct IP.

    You could always just go a whoami site. It will tell you your IP.

    how bout you do an IPCONFIG from a dos prompt?
    it should tell you where you are.

    if not point me to a post with prev address and I'll see if we can figure out where you're
    at.

    Ok, I just reread what you posted and currently all of your posts show the same IP address (work I'm
    guessing). Give me a minute to figure this out.

    You guys misunderstood him. He is not at home right now. He's trying to rdp (i.e. "remote connect") to his home computer from somewhere else, but needs the ip address of his home computer to do so. He cannot use those links, as they are. That's why he's asking if a previous post he's made can be traced back to his home computer.

    Address of his home computer? What good will that do him? He can get that with ipconfig.

    Depends if his router is doing NAT or not but probably is. I use to get public IP space from my ISP but it is not so common these days.

    If you've ever used Remote Desktop Connection to log in remotely, then maybe you'll understand.

    Remember, he is not home right now and have no access to his PC. "ipconfig" only gives you info on the computer you're logged on to.

    Most people don't setup nat in the prive networks. At least its pretty rare. Most of the clients I see use a private network with the router getting the public ip

    - since i had dynamic IP on my bellatlantic service a long time ago, i put a simple crontab script on my firewall at home to email the assigned IP address every eight hours... a simple:

    /sbin/ifconfig | grep broadcast | mail -s your_ip_addr me@somewhere.com

    - worked great, and i was always able to ssh into my home LAN via the firewall from anywhere!

    (i'm sure there are much more sophisticated methods/boxen now, but i was using a 130MHz Pentium laptop with two PCMCIA NICs as my firewall, hosting a simple ipfilter ruleset at the time; btw, old notebooks with new batteries make good backup servers with built-in UPS up-times!)

    It is tough to beat a Linux router/firewall.

    Falkon, you might look into a dynamic-DNS system. DynDNS is one, No-IP is another, I'm sure there are lots by now. You can run an updater script as a service that will update the website on your current IP, so that you only have to remotely connect to yourusername.dynamicdns.com or somesuch. Much easier to remember.

    +1 on that. DynDNS can give you a hostname.dyndns.com for free, and if you have a custom domain, you can pay a little bit a year to have all or part of it dynamically redirected.

    unless you pay for a static address, it may change when the ISP burps the switch

    dynamic dns can keep track of it
