      Finding IP address

      Recently moved from Nildram to Sky BB and on Nildram I used to have a user control panel where I could find usage stats etc and more importantly my current IP address,

      Is there a way to find my IP address remotely with sky BB

      Basically at work and would like to know my IP address so can VNC into my machine and check some downloads but obviously IP address will change from time to time.

      Welcome CJ,

      Try thinkbroadband.com

      Then: tools. Then: What is my IP.

      (Just realised this doesn't answer your question.
      But at least it has bumped the thread.)

      Re: Finding IP address

      I suspect that I might have to come up with something myself....

      Was thinking on adding a PHP page to a website that keeps a record of the URL (e.g. www.site/ip.php?ip=192.168.0.1) and I can find it that way just would need to sort something to get my machine to automatically visit the site and put the correct IP address in the URL, which might be hard as its the routers IP address not the machine ....

      Re: Finding IP address

      Check out Dynamic Network Services, Inc. -- DynDNS -- Welcome the router supports it and you can have a name like something.dyndns.org that'll always resolve to your current IP, even when it changes.
