im trying to connect two pc's that are both on broadband bt. I have followed the xp wizards and have set up a incoming connection on the pc i wish to connect too, but it Icant connect to it from my laptop. The first question i have is do i have to connect using the internet ip address or the pc ip address if the internet address how do i find that address as checking with ipconfig it just returns the normal 192.168.1.xx type address, any help would be appreciated

regards

dave

Are you trying to connect two computers in a Local Area Network or over the internet at separate locations?

To find your WAN (public) IP address as allocated by your ISP click here although it will probably change for each online session.
