    I appear to have forgotten my IP address..

    Yes, I know it sounds silly, but I rebooted my router without updating my IPUpdate database.

    So basically, can you tell me the IP addresses I used to logon to C9 around 8:30 AM GMT?

    Cheers

    Yes and post it on the internet please, thanks Wink Email it to him instead. Or not. He could be trying to social engineer an IP address out of you 9Teamers, don't do it!



    Has the trap been set?
    Loadsgood.

    He wants to know the IP he used previous to restarting the router. This wouldn't do any good. And plus he could do it from the command prompt, as well.

    ipconfig /all

    I am asleep this morning,
    I use this when behind a NAT Firewall to get the outside address.

    That won't help if you're behind NAT.

    My mistake.

    Should you have used *nix servers over SSH with the previous ip you could see it by logging in the same one again and it shows the host you previously logged from.

  • Shaded

    You should be able to find it in the headers of any emails you sent at that time.  Did you send yourself any email those days?

    This may sound strange but my email box is like a gigantic notebook to me.  I frequently send messages to myself

    ...Remember to do this tomorrow for whoever...

    Good luck.

    It would be nice if IM servers gave you a history of recent logins to your account by IP... would help catch password leaks, for example...

    Well, I'm home now...

    note to self: Reboot router BEFORE 4:00am (that's the time my IPUpdate program stores my IP address)

    Being a mindless cable modem user, where my IP is given to me, I don't know the intracacies of this problem. Why is losing an IP address a problem? And what does it mean to lose an IP address?

    I've got a dynamic IP address that changes every time I reboot my router.

    I need my home IP address if I'm to connect to my home Server which hosts OWA and Terminal Services.

    In order to keep track of my ever-changing IP address, I wrote a little "mini-app" that sends a HTTP POST to an ASP.NET page on my w3bdevil.com server which stores the "REMOTE_ADDR" HTTP1.1 field in a database which is then recalled on a HTTP GET. Its a simple solution and it works.

    I would normally use No-Ip.com, but I don't trust their software.

    Er...unless you spontaneously generate packets out of your butt, don't you have an ISP?  I'd be willing to bet that the money you spend month provides some kind of tech support.

    Do you need your current home IP?  This won't help you now, but look up dyndns.org and get a freebie domain name.  They have an app that you run on your home machine that will ping them on a semi-regular basis so that if your IP changes, they can propagate the change through DNS.  This has the side effect of showing your IP address Smiley

    Interesting...
    Technically REMOTE_ADDR is not an HTTP field, it's just reading off the connecting IP from the socket (so HTTP is not involved, just TCP)
    I do something similar to check, not the client, but the server (that it's up, responding, and not giving error messages) and then I email myself the result

    That's what my existing software does! Silly Tongue Out
