How to identify IP addresses?

  Whaty 12:50 14 Feb 2007

This is a two part question really.

1) How can I find the IP address of my home PC?
2) How do you identify the IP addresses of PC's and Printers on a LAN?

I seem to think there is something you can type at the cmd prompt to identify the IP's on a LAN?

Thank you for your prompt replies.!

├četa, daft question but do you simply type Arp -a at the cmd prompt?

The cmd prompt ipconfig /all and the link provided by anchor give me two different IP's?

Please can someone explain?

You are only interested ( probably ) in your internal network. ipconfig /all and the arp commands will supply ALL that you need. The link as supplied ( probably ) supplies the IP address of your ISP. ie The IP address of the Server that gives you an I/Net connection.

L_Driver, ipconfig /all and the arp commands is just what I wanted.

Having tried the link supplied by anchor on a couple of PC's are think you are right in your suggestion that it is the IP address of the Server that gives you an I/Net connection.
