I have highlighted the IP address assigned to the computer’s network adapter. This is the IP address of the computer.
Internet IP address of your computer
Call something a “network” and the IP address to feel redundant. IP actually stands for Internet Protocol. When Internet Protocol is often used even when not connected directly to the internet, it is not really silly to talk about an IP address that’s on the Internet or Internet protocol address internet.
There are several web sites that you can visit that will tell you your Internet IP address. Instead of sending you somewhere else, I’ll just tell you: your IP address is 188.8.131.52.
So why is it different from the IP address of your computer?
It is very likely that all the computers in your house will show the same internet IP address.
IP address of your computer
Windows does not come with any great utility to make finding the IP address of your computer easily. (Before you protest, I am talking about the IP address of your computer. As we shall see in a moment, that is not something that you would get from a website.)
Simple explanation is running Windows Command Prompt (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt, or typing Windows Key + R, type cmd and click OK), and in the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig next On .Let’s back up and look at how the IP address was assigned.
In most cases, the Internet address is assigned automatically:
In this example, your computer uses a protocol called DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) to connect to your ISP or network provider. It requires an IP address and the ISP assigns a. From here, determine the IP address that computers on the internet. Now, the IP address can change. When the computer connects again, it might be for a different address. That is why it is called an IP address “dynamic”.
A static IP address is … well, static. Your computer does not require ISPs to an IP address. Both the computer and the ISP is configured manually to “know” the first IP address and the computer from which it mentions:
now I will leave behind a static IP assignments. Most of the rest of this article shall apply equally to static and dynamic distribution, except in the details of how the IP addresses are actually assigned. Dynamic is what most of the situation, we’re trying to clarify here related.
So, let’s insert a router into the mix. It is located between the computer and the internet. When you turn on or attaching it to connect to your ISP, one of the first things it does is ask the IP address:
Note that the router questions and get an IP address; which now identifies it on the internet.
At some point, you can turn on your computer, which is connected to the router. It also must request an IP address:
The computer was requested by the router this time and get an IP address from the router. Note that “192 168”. Address is special. You will never find on the internet. Those are reserved for local networks, like what we’re building. In fact, if you connect a second computer to your router, you are building a local area network:
Note that the two computers have a unique IP address is assigned from the router.
And the router has its own IP address to connect it to the internet.
Network Address Translation at work
Now, what happens when one of the computer makes a request to access the internet? The computer with the internet through the router, so the first step looks like this:
then the router must transmit that request to the Internet:
To the internet, it looks like the router is made on demand. Remember, the Internet can not see the IP address of your internal, so the service router from the internal address (192.168.1.100) to outside (184.108.40.206 in this example). When the response comes, the same translation happens in reverse:
The router keeps track of the computers in the LAN side that request and the route of an appropriate response.
That is what is called NAT (Network Address Translation). The router management IP address on a LAN, or Local Area Network, and then transferred to the appropriate IP address as the connection is made through it.
There are two main reasons why NAT is used, even if only one computer can be connected to a router:
All the devices behind the router appears to use the exact same IP address on the Internet. You may have heard that the internet is “running out” of IP addresses, and this technique was originally developed as a way around that. It is a way to connect with a large number of computers to the internet while using only a single IP address.
Connection can only be started walking. This means that your computer behind the router can make a connection to a server on the Internet, as perhaps https:hotmailsigninvl.com. Once established, the connection then can transfer data in either direction, but it has been initiated by your computer. A computer on the Internet by default can not initiate a connection to your computer – there’s simply no protocol to pass through the router while towards the rear. This is why I very often mention a NAT router as a firewall, because ultimately that’s what a firewall does is good. It prevents the computer from outside your random connections.
Even if the first issue is not a problem, I’d still recommend using a NAT router as a firewall. It’s simple and good.
Internet Protocol version 6 is designed to remove all IP address issues. Each device on the planet can have its own IPv6 address – they can have more, if that turns out to be useful. There’s just a lot. (340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456 in theory, although I’m sure the actual limit is somewhat less.)
As I mentioned above, even if the IP address does not need games, Network Address Translation provided by the router turns out to provide a security interest so important. I do not see the technique that will come anytime soon. And it certainly can still do NAT for IPv6.
