I'll delete this after you see it, or an Admin or Mod can if I'm not logged on. Should be pretty safe for a bit.

if you're on a private net, or behind a firewall your computer could be using an IP that is private (10.X.X.X, or 192.X.X.X..), or you could be surfing through one public ip assigned to your router or other device..

You can certainly run wipipcfg on WinXp, or open a command prompt (start, run, cmd) and type ipconfig. If you are using a private number (see above) you can go to a site like http://www.grc.com (not urle'd on purpose) to see your ip address (GRC: shields up to run the port test and to see what IP you are using).

I know the problem has been solved already...

yes and no. Most firewalls (hardware and software) you can specify certain traffic (ports) access to and from your computer. Read up in the documenation that accompanied your firewire for more info on how to turn these on and off, and what type of traffic uses which ports..

The windows program is winipcfg, the dos applet is ipconfig (you can run from command line in NT/XP/2000)
