    Well, if you use Windows, go to MS-DOS and type 'ipconfig' (without quotes) and it'll have it there.

    Next time, just to make it easier for people to answer your question, give us some details about your system, such as what Operating System you use.

    You could also use a program called winipcfg in Windows ME and lower... Its a GUI to the ipconfing command line

    And if you use an Operating System (hehe)
    netstat or
    ifconfig

    Websites such as whatsmyipaddress.com have the caveat that they don't work for anyone behind a NAT or proxy of any kind (they simply report the source address from where they've received the packet(s)). Many ISPs these days are resulting to RFC1918 addresses (ie. IPs designed for "disconnected" or private network space) for their dial-ins or DSL lines and the like...

    For windows, as was already said, "winipcfg" (for Win95, Win98, etc) and "ipconfig /all" (for "late-model" Windows boxes like 2k) will give you the address your machine is using.

    For most UN*X boxes, the command you will probably need is "ifconfig" with proper options (usually "-a"). It should normally live under /usr/sbin/ifconfig or /sbin/ifconfig, depending on the flavor you are running.

    of couse that would not work if u were behind a proxy becouse that is the point of proxys...spoof ur IP, anyway I was just asuming that he wasn't behind a proxy. Also it is just faster to use dos.

    oh yeah i know the "real" point of proxys orinaly was to make "surfing the web faster" (coundn't think of a better way to put it right now)
