  hugh-265156 22:24 18 Oct 2003

somebody more knowledgable will explain it no doubt.i dont think there is anything to worry about with your ip address being broadcast,think its normal.

if you have a good firewall you should be ok.

If you hide your IP address You will become invisible, now you don't want that, surely.

You IP Address is broadcast every time you do anything on the Internet.

Unless you are doing something seriously wrong you have no reason to hide it and no reason to fear its broadcast.

if your are dial up your ip address alters every dialup if you are broadband it stays static as far as i know.mine certainly changes every dialup,it's not a problem if you are behind a decent firewall.

With Dial-up connection every time you re-log in your IP address changes

Broadband your IP address is static until your ISP changes it. This normally happens about 1-2 weeks

If you try and mask your IP address then in my opinion you have something to hide.

By the way you did not get an e-mail saying that your IP address was not hidden did you?
