IP Address

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by armourer, May 21, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. How do you find out if you have a static IP address or a floating one ?
     
  2. open a command prompt (run CMD)

    then type ipconfig /all

    it will probably mention something about DHCP, if you use the internet regularly you'll normally be given the same ip address (so its sort of static). If you ask your internet provider some will give you a static address
     
  3. Go to network connection->select properties on whatever connection you are using, then highlight internet protocol and select properties.

    If you have obtain an ip address automatically checked, then you're dynamic.

    If you have use the following ip address checked, then you're static.

    Hope this helps!
     
  4. Thanks for that...I'm dynamic.....obviously in addition to being a brave, intelligent, humourous bronzed beach god....or was that beached whale.. :D
     
  5. Roxy, switch on. mouse is for losers, command-line for winners. good old fashioned ipconfig/all is far more efficient (less effort y'see)
     
  6. It depends on how you connect as well.

    Best method, check with ISP.
     
  7. One of the simple ways to tell, if your in UK, not on cable and use a phone line for your broadband. If you pay between 10 and 30 quid for your service, you can pretty much guarantee that your IP is dynamic. Static IP's are far to valuable to give away for peanuts.

  9. Unless you use Freeola Broadband, when they will allocate you a static ip address (although you can leave your system to obtain it dynamically, you will always get "your" ip address).
