Network IP Addressing
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
When I enter "IPCONFG" in the command prompt as directed, I get a message that it is not recognized as an internal or external command, inoperable program or batch file. I am running Windows XP, SP3 Professional
Can you help?
The command is IPCONFIG. Probably, the 'I' got left left out by mistake.
Type? You meant ipconfig for a windows machine.
This is for Robert Solarski (and everyone else!) --
You've managed to catch Leo in a rare error: he mannaged to misspell the command. It's not "IPCONFG", but "IPCONFIG" (a second "I" belongs between the "F" and the "G"). That's why you're getting CMD.EXE's equivalent of a "?SYNTAX ERROR".
Nyah nyah nyah, Leo! Shame on you! :) :) :)
Be careful slinging the raspberries, Glenn P. !
"he mannaged to misspell the command"
contains a misspelling of its own!
("managed" contains but one "n")
:o :) :=)
Strictly speaking, 'machines' don't have IP addresses, it's network adapters that have an IP address! You'll have an IP address for each network card installed; thus your computer could have two or three!
Thanks, everybody, but I already figured it out, which I should have done before firing off my comment. It's nice to know that somebody else is not perfect.
Another way to find the IP Address is to go to the Internet and type in www.whatismyip.com. This works for only one networkcard. With more than one networkcard I don't know if it would show multiple IP Addresses.
