IP2 is a small program that you can use to determine your IP addresses - both WAN and LAN. What this means is that along with showing you the traditional IP address that your computer is using in its local environment (e.g. a LAN) it will also show you what your IP address is from the perspective of an "outsider" on the Internet. This is in contrast to the many tools and utilities available on the Internet that simply return the LAN address, which is useless if somebody on the Internet needs to connect to your computer.

Your WAN and LAN IP addresses may be the same if you are directly accessing the Internet with something like a dialup modem or a cable modem without a hardware NAT router. However, if you are using some kind of hardware router or firewall as your gateway to the Internet, your computer will most likely have been assigned a "non-routable" IP address such as 10.1.2.3 or 192.168.1.2 for example. In this situation there is no easy way to find out what your true Internet IP address is. This is where IP2 comes into play.

IP2 uses one of several methods to determine your true Internet IP address. A built-in list of several servers enables the program to send a request and receive a reply from a remote server containing your Internet accessible IP address.

Methods:
* Queries one of the MyWANIP servers (hope they don't mind!) and deciphers the response containing your IP.
* Queries the Geektools Whois server (whois.geektools.com) and parses the output for the string containing your IP address.
* Queries one of the following web sites. All of these are running a script that will report back web CGI variables, including the REMOTE_ADDR environment variable that contains the caller's IP address. This list was gathered using a quick search on the web and is in no particular order.

Enjoy (or not)

I have it running on my system here and it works fine.

What's not working for you?

The software?

The addon?

What's your error message?

Are you using nLite and what did you remove?

There's no point complaining unless you accompany it with some specific details :rolleyes:

Yes I have had the same problem with that, and some networking apps need to be configed to your local IP for port forwarding so discovering this was a blessing for me too. Glad it works OK for you too ;)

Yeh she's a goodie alright Loads. I didn't realise Robin Keir was still updating his software (it's been a few years since all his last releases) so thanks for the headsup.

Cheers!
