Finding location of private IP address

Q: Finding location of private IP address

Hello,

First of all I have Windows Vista.

My question is, I have been receiving emails from a private ip address. I have put the ip address into a variety of websites and the only info I get is a location on the map. The person that sent the email says they are in Turkey and the private ip address comes up in the Nigeria region. I want to get the info that is unknown from the search of the private address. Is it possible? The following are the private address.

rec. 10.152.19.97
rec. 10.64.126.71

rec. 10.112.168.35
rec. 10.114.175.45

Thanks Turkatenka

Upon obtaining Internet service from a local company (Suddenlink) attached the line from the modem to this computer and connected successfully to the Internet. A few days later only assigned "Local Connection" and I could not connect to the Internet. After fumbling around with it, thought maybe the problem existed due to the location; Public or Private connection. I selected Private location even with the warning that if that selection was selected that it was permanent. Now cannot even receive Local connection, the computer wants to connect to a "Dial-up/VPN" network....how can I fix this and connect to the Internet via the wired connection from the modem provided by Suddenlink?

Hi all.

From a working network between two computers, I now have a problem.

I can see why the failure occured, but cannot figure why.

The problem shows in the part of the Network and Sharing centre screen that describes the network location i.e Public or Private.

On viewing this screen, the location descriptor continuously jumps between Public and Private, (remaining longer on Public) when, during network setup, the location was set to Private giving me excellent network access between the computers.

I have found no method that will return the ability to set and retain the location to Private.


Regards.

Long story short, I am trying to install a new usb wireless router on my laptop, I have tried using three different adapters all of which once the drivers are installed show either a "unidentified", or "public" network. They all connect to the network, and I am able to browse through the other computer on the network but there is no internet. The old adapter works on both pc's, but none of the other three work on either pc (other pc is running Vista, would rather work with 7). So how do I get a different adapter to work? The internal adapter got to where it just would not get a signal and when it did it was slow, but I tried it again just because, and had the same problem with it, it would not change to a home network, what is going on?

ps. The old usb adapter works for about 2-3 hours then it gets hot and quits until it cools off, then it works again.

Have you tried going into the Network and Sharing center then to the left side choose "Manage Wireless Connections" using the manual wireless set up there to make sure that all settings are correct to access your new USB router.

It might also be required that you go into the routers wireless set up page to choose the settings you want to use.

As for the Unidentified network problem, you sometimes need to make manual adjustments to fix that problem. The link below shows you how.

Hello All:

This may be a thread for the security forum...but here goes. I recently set up a small wireless home network with a wired desktop and wireless laptop. Everything works great. Both run XP SP2 and I use the free versions of ZoneAlarm and Avast for firewall and antivirus. My router is a D-Link DI-524 with WPA security and MAC address filtering enabled. The other night I was messing around with a site that tests your firewall vulnerability and everything passed except it was indicated to me that while surfing I am making my public IP address available (which I guess is OK), but that the site could also read my private IP address. I'm not sure what that even is except that I think it has something to do with my router. Does anyone know exactly what a private IP address is? Also, how bad is it that it can be seen on the web? How do I block it from being seen? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Dave

Hi Everyone,

I have a windows 2003 server desktop in my office. This is connected to wireless router which inturn is connected to the ISP modem. ISP modem is giving a public IP but the wireless router is making it private for the network.
I have no issues when I am working within the network.

If I want to access my office desktop (an application installed on it), I need to connect via its IP address. As it is private IP iam not able to connect it. Is there any way through which I can access my server which is on private IP.

Any help would be highly appreciated. Guide me to correct forum, if I placed the question in wrong forum.

A:Remote access of private IP address

Your wireless router is acting as a Firewall between you and the Internet. If you need to access resources on your office network, then you need to program the router to forward that network traffic to the appropriate resource.

I don't want to assume what resource you are trying to access but I assume you want to access the desktop of the Windows 2003.

To do this, you need to login to your routers configuration and forward port 3389 which is the port that Remote Desktop works on, to the LAN (private) Ip address of your Windows 2003 server.

Most small office routers have nice instructions in their manual on how to accomplish this task. If you don't have the manual you can most likely download it from the manufacturers website.

There is also a website called portforward.com that has nice tutorials on how to do this with many of the common routers that are out there today.

Hey guys, ok so... private ip address that are reserved for private use are (i think):

10.0.0.0
172.16.0.0
192.168.0.0

So, say you have 5 computers on a network that use the private addressing scheme of:

192.168.0.2
192.168.0.3
192.168.0.4
192.168.0.5
192.168.0.6

If computer A wants to communicate with computer B within the network, how does computer A know that 192.168.0.x is a private address within the same network and not an address on the internet? Which device/protocol is holding the information that 192.168.0.x is within the private IP address ranges.

Thanks in advance!

Happy holidays! For me, it's turning into one big folly day: I stuffed around with my Billion router to get Windows Home Server to accept remote connections - and in the process cut off my wife's Vista Ultimate 64bit machine from the Internet...

Router is back to normal now, but try as I might, Vista Networking and Sharing Center stubbornly refuses to accept a private network IP that my router holds ready for it (in the 192.168.1.0 range).

Instead, it allocates a private network address in the 169.x.x.x range and I simply can't force it to change this.

My wife was running Ubuntu 9.10 on her PC before, and networking under it was slightly difficult! But it was nothing compared to this arcane and all-over-the place networking 'system' that is Vista's...

Any pointers on how to muzzle this MS private network IP monster is welcome. How to stop it being a DHCP server would be a start...

Meanwhile merry Xmas to all!

Hi, I've been trying to host a server for a multiplayer computer game called Neverwinter Nights. Unfortunately, I've run into some trouble because of the way my connection is set up, I think.

I'm not running a router, but it seems my PC automatically sets up a private IP address, and the external IP address from the internet, as in the following pictures:

http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x184/SerotoninPics/ipconfigall2.jpg

http://i187.photobucket.com/albums/x184/SerotoninPics/NetworkConnections.jpg

Now, the problem I'm having is that whenever I try to run the dedicated server program for this game, it automatically attempts to use my private IP address instead of my external IP address.

How can I set up my connection so that it doesn't try to set up a private IP address beginning with 169.254.*.* at all?

Further useful info:
Running Windows Firewall (with exceptions for the game, and the server program), and Windows XP + SP2. My broadband modem model type is "BT Voyager 105 USB ADSL", and I'm on AOL UK Broadband. Occasionally, my broadband modem is unplugged and taken to another PC in the house to be used there.

A view of your IP address (ipcoinfig /all) will help. You might try restarting your modem, or find out if you're getting a dynamic or static address from your ISP.

You could also have a router/modem combo device. Just realized that you posted the model. Its not a combo device.

More information will be needed to actually help you.

One last thing is to make sure that your ISP can contact your modem. You will have to call them to test the connection.

Objective:
I'm looking for a more fail-safe way of the move process. My first thought was to create a "move to" link for the right-click. But from there she has to continuously search for the "Specific file." I thought there were programs out there that allowed one to have a group of 'specific folders" to move files to. In other words, Right-click on a file, select move to, have a list of folder that one could move the file to, select the folder, and its all done.

any ideas??

I am running into a problem where my machine keeps assigning an automatic private internet address rather than getting an address from DHCP. My computer seems to "see" the router (link light goes on and off when I plug/unplug the cable, the network indicator in the system tray goes live/dead), but it won't acquire an address, and I can't log into the router control panel when I type in the address of the router in a browser.

I don't want to lead anyone down the wrong path, but this error appears to have started after running Bootvis. The connection was running perfectly until I ran Bootvis. This is the second time I've had the problem -- I did a clean install of XP to fix the problem the first time. I think it also happened shortly after running Bootvis the first time, although I didn't put two and two together at the time and associate the problem with Bootvis (hence, completely reinstalling XP). After spending the better part of a weekend reinstalling and configuring XP, I'm hoping there's an "easier" way to fix it this time.

Here is what I've tried so far (all to no avail):

- Rebooted (several times)
- Unplugged/plugged/rebooted/reset/power cycled router (several times)
- "Repair" the network connection (under local area connection status)
- ipconfig /release, /flushdns, and /renew
- went to the Services manager and clicked "restart" on DHCP Client and DNS Client

A:Change "Unidentified Network" networ location from public to private

  You can't change the unidentified network to private because that is prevented by a default security setting.    You can change the security setting so that the network is not made public in the first place.   Here is what you need to do from a previous discussion on this.To do this on your local server , follow these steps:
1. Start --> run --> MMC --> press enter
2. In MMC console , from menu file select Add/Remove Snap-in
3. Select Group Policy Object editor --> Press Add --> select Local computer --> press OK -->press OK
4. Open Computer configration -->Windows Settings -->Security Settings -->select Network list manager policieson the right Side you will see options for :
double click -->Unidentified networks
  Then you can select the option to consider the Unidentified networks as private and if user can change the location.
I hope that is will help you and is clear .

Hello all,

I have purchased a domain name through a registrar (enom central)
I currently have a hyper v lab set up at home with a domain controller/dns server
and am thinking of starting a web server on either Apache or IIS on a
different virtual machine. I want to point my domain name to my home web server.

My question is this: What do I do I have to do at my domain name registrar? I'm assuming
I have to point a type of dns record to my home server's public IP and maybe vice versa.

I have a static IP at home. Do I have to create some DNS records pointing from my
domain name registrar to my server at home using my PUBLIC ip address?
If possible please provide specifics on which records I should point to my home server
PUBLIC ip address and if any DNS changes need to be made within my domain. Also if
any records on my home domain (windows ad domain setup)

I seem to be able to find a lot of info on Apache and IIS but not a whole lot of info
on how your web domain name registrar relates to your own web server . I'm not really
interested on IIS or Apache specifics but more interested in the fundamentals of how
a domain name registrar (GoDaddy, or any other registrar/host) needs to be pointed to your
web server and vice versa.
I know a lot of people on forums tend to point to links or tell me to go to google but

Hello guys! First of all I'm sorry if I make grammatical mistakes; my English is not perfect.

My question is that why my dns server address (location) is different from my IP address (location) when I'm using VPS?
I wanted to have a Russian IP and got a Russian VPS. Now when I check ipleak website, it shows that my IP if from Russia but my DNS server address is for Finland. How can I solve this issue and have the same location(Russia) for both IP and DNS?

I thought maybe it's normal that DNS server can be from another country but I wanted to know that can websites detect that I'm using VPS and/or my location isn't Russia?
I mean does it make sense that I'm from another country only for the reason that my DNS (not IP) shows another country?

I've checked my real IP (lets I'm in Italy now and my real IP is for Italy) with ipleak.net and it shows my DNS address from some other countries but Italy is also included. I've also tested it with some other computers with real IP and all shows only Italy or one of DNS address server locations is Italy.

Thanks in advance and sorry for long question!

Looking forward for your help/guide

Best,
Ali

If you look below, you will see my "location", but really I live in Oregon (This would be nice speeds if I really were 1700 miles away).

So whats wrong? Windows 7's fault, or Speedtest.net's fault.

BTW How do I enable my signature?

Edit: I just looked up in another site, and it had my location wrong.

Hi not sure this is in the correct section.
I had a security alert to my google account saying a new device logged into it.
In order to check out the activity I looked up the IP address for the device and compared it to my other devices that connected to my google account, I also then check the IP address location versus my other device's IP address locations when they log into my network.
The strange thing is that it shows that the IP address originates from the exact same location as my other devices.
I am stumped. I do not recognize the device, but according to the IP address location, it accessed my account from the same place as my laptop, which is my home. (Let me add I am having issues with my teenage daughter accessing the internet when she is not supposed to).
I guess my question is: If the unrecognized device's log-in location is the same as my other devices( I do not mean exactly the same IP address, just that when I checked the IP locations, they showed the same origination) does that mean it the unrecognized device was in my home?

I have Win XP with multiple users. I recently had to reinstall our email stuff onto a new computer. I have been able to find mailboxes and one of the address book files (.wab). HOwever, my question is, with multiple users in XP, does OE create/save seperate address book files for each user. In the address book that I found, it only has information from one of the address books, not information from both of them.

Any help on how to restore the second address book would be greatly appreciated.

Hello. I hope you can assist me with my question. I apologize if it seems ridiculously simple, but I'm just looking for clarification, and most of what I know right now I've only figured out on my own today through repetitive Googling.

First a little background: A friend's email was hacked recently, and some fraudulent emails were sent from his account. He suspects me, as I am one of the few people that knew his password, but I know that I had nothing to do with this, and in addition recieved a few of the fraudulent emails. Upon being accused, I set out to clear my name.

I understand that all computers are assigned IP addresses, more or less to keep track of what computer is doing/sending what emails or requests for sites or what have you. I have already figured out how to find my own IP address as well as the IP address of the computer that sent the messages. Obviously, they do not match. But I also understand that IP addresses are assigned dynamically in most cases, meaning they can change. And with this being the case, the fact that my IP address right now is not the same as the IP address that sent the message initially does little for my case. All it really means is that my IP does not match right now.

So for my question(s) : is there any way that I can look up what my IP address was at a certain period of time, to prove that at the time the emails were sent, it was not my computer that sent them? Or find out if my address is indeed static, as it has ... Read more

I've heard that someone can find out your ip address if they monitor a website they know you go to often.

Example...... Let's say i have a website online that they are aware of, and i visit it daily. I've heard they can set something up whereby they can record all the ip addresses that visit this site.

Is this true? Is this a man-in-the-middle attack?

thanks,
d
 

A:finding ip address

Yes, Apache web server has logs which show what ip addresses are connecting to it. If the attacker can view the logs then they would know which ip's visited the site. I think IIS web server has similar logs. But they wouldn't know which ip is yours though, if they don't know what time you visited.

No, this is not called man-in-the-middle, m-i-t-m is when attackers places himself between your ip and the destination ip and relays traffic both ways, to and from. And you won't notice that some one is eaves dropping.

How do I find out my IP address?
 

A:Finding IP address

Do this, Start>Run, key in winipcfg and press enter. Depending on your setup you may need to run that command after your connected to the net to get your IP address. It also may change from session to session if your set to acquire an IP address from the server at connection time.

I have an IP addressable web cam that I haven't used for a while. Now I want to use it again, but cannot remember the IP address...I want to go in and make some changes. I also changed the router (the new router IP is different from the orignal). Is there some easy way to find the IP while inside my home network? I wonder if I can plug it into the new router and do some ping of some sort.
Thanks in advance!

This problem just cropped up yesterday and my ISP (Comcast/Xfinity) is being singularly unhelpful. The IP address reports my location as Vancouver Washington - however I live in Portland Oregon. This is causing economic problems as when I make a purchase I am being charged sales tax - which Washington has but Oregon does not!. Any ideas on how to change this?

My IP Address Longtitude: (-122.5775)

My ISP (Internet Service Provider): Comcast Cable
My IP Address lookup for 76.105.248.211 show IP which belongs to: Comcast Cable

A:IP address reporting wrong location

You need to speak to your ISP again. It is only them that can sort this out. If you provide proof they can't really argue with you. Wherever you got that information from above I would tell Comcast to look in the same place to confirm that it is showing your location as Vancouver then tell them to sort it out.
