"THANKS for ipAddress 2.51.!!!!!
I travel a lot & use iPass to connect with my ISP to collect POP3 Email & I always have to find my IP address & type it into the iPass form. This makes it effortless & saves time - especially when using expensive satellite connections! A SUPER program!
THANKS MUCH!"

When you use the internet, your computer has a unique number which identifies your computer to other computers on the internet.  This unique number is known as the computer's IP (Internet Protocol) Address.

For most people, when they connect to the Internet, their ISP (Internet Service Provider) automatically allocates an IP address for the duration of that connection.

There are times when we need to know what IP Address the ISP has allocated to our computer.  This can be difficult and irritating to find.  So now there is a simple, free application to take the hassle out of it all.

ipAddress Screen Shot

 
ipAddress is a simple application written for Windows 95 / 98 / ME / NT 4 / 2000. ipAddress was written because a lot of people were asking how to determine the IP Address of their computer. There are other ways to do it, by using the command prompt etc, but people wanted an easier way.

ipAddress displays the current IP Address(es) of your computer in a floating window which can be resized and set to be always on top if you want. You can also change the background colour to make ipAddress fit in with your personal preference of colour schemes.

The latest version of ipAddress includes an option to copy the IP Address to the Windows clipboard so that you can paste it into another application.

ipAddress is freeware

If you connect to the Internet through a broadband connection (cable modem, ADSL router etc) then your visible IP Address on the Internet will probably not be the one reported by ipAddress. The reason for this is that ipAddress reports the IP Address(es) of your PC. With a broadband connection, often the IP Address of your computer is 'hidden' behind the broadband router and the visible IP Address on the Internet is actually the IP Address of your broadband router. To see your visible Internet IP Address, have a look at this page.
