    I'm assuming your using Windows. Type "ipconfig" in a DOS shell.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.

    Here is your external, real IP address:

    Here is your internal LAN IP address on a windows machine:
    command line : ipconfig

    Or, for Win98, run winipcfg

    [edit[
    Moved thread to the Tech forum.
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    What you're talking about is a firewall. Most firewalls allow you to let certain programs access the internet.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    ic ic,

    but how about the "AbsoluteShield Internet Eraser Pro" http://www.versiontracker.com/mp/ne...=popup&x=17&y=5
    or other things similar to it? what do they mean by "protects your privacy by cleaning up all the tracks of your Internet and computer activities." I thought this meant no access to my activities from outside.

    cheers,
    Ben

    protects your privacy by cleaning up all the tracks of your Internet and computer activities. Sounds like it would delete your history, cookies, or cache. Programs like that usually have spyware of some sort. I would not trust it at all.

    You can't erase ware you have ben on the internet unless you plan on hacking your ISP which is rediculous. But you can manually clean up on your computer.. with IE C:\\Windows-
    histery, cookies, temp. internet files etc.

    That's how people get caught doing stuff their not suposed to on the internet, the (US)gov. has access to the databasses of ISPs. But there are ways around that - 'Bouncing' off a host computer is an example.
