Assuming I understand your question then each device on a network needs an independant IP address. They all share a subnet mask however.

Hi Erin

I want to enquire about a boat, but i dont want the seller to know it's me as i have contacted him before, just wondered if i used my wifes laptop can it be linked to me by any IP address or anything else, or am i going to use my next doors connection.

Cheers

Do you have a static ip from your service provider ? , Unlikely unless you specified it for VPN useage.. do you use a router and switch it off at night ? without a static IP you'll probably get a different IP each time you power your router up. All your machines behind that router have a small selection of local network addresses allocated by your router as you power up each machine, unless you have a machine specified to be on a fixed local address, which should all be invisible if your router is set up properly.

If you go next door .. you avoid all these dont knows,if you are unsure , and really fox him because its probably a different ISP to yours anyway

Take one of her laptops to a public WiFi point and do it. It won't be the same IP addy as the last time you contacted him.

Assuming you're using outlook express, right click on the message while it's closed and in your inbox. Click 'properties' then click the 'details' tab.The sender's IP addy will be in there.

Look for 'Return-Path'. It should be just underneath it.

Code:
Return-Path: <member@ebay.co.uk>
Received: from mxpool14.ebay.com (mxpool14.ebay.com [66.135.197.20])

Not sure about in OE - but in thunderbird I have two Received from lines - the first one in the IP address of the senders mail server, the second is the IP address of the machine that sent the message to the server (i.e. the sender's IP address). I guess with complex messages/routes it can be more convoluted!


Ian,

In simple terms (assuming there is nothing odd about your home network) every machine will appear to the "outside world" as having the same IP address (you can check this here http://www.whatsmyip.org/). As Bigmuz says with many ISPs when you reset your router you'll get a new ISP - but this is not always the case (e.g. if you have a static IP address, or even on my router (O2broadband) the default is to "reuse" the IP address unless you turn it off for something like 24 hours). You could force it to change - but its more hassle than its worth. There are some Proxy services around which will let you hide your IP - not sure if these will work with webbased mail services?

If you access email on your phone (via 3g or gprs NOT over your wireless) it will presumably have a different IP addy.
