    How do I find my IP address in windows 2000?

    I type ipconfig and a dos box pops up but dissapears immediately.

    There is a flag to keep the command box up, can't recall offhand. My
    way would be to run cmd.exe (or just "cmd" in Start-Run) and enter
    "ipconfig" at the prompt in the command window.

    Hi, I was trying to network 2 pc's, seems zone alarm had a problem I just
    put the whole thing in trusted and its fine.
    I had it in the internet zone as it is a broadband router, I dunno if this
    leaves me vulnerable.

    Rick, whenever the advice to use a 'dos box' or 'command prompt'
    comes-up when using Win2000 or XP, just click the "Start" button,
    select "Run" then just type "cmd" <enter> and it won't disappear.
    In this case, do that, then type 'ipconfig /all' (if they knew what they
    were blathering about, they'd have told you that, anyway..)

    Stuart posted exactly that in the first reply to the OP.
    If people read the thread properly then maybe they wouldn't be tempted to
    post such insults.

    My apologies - I didn't make if clear that I was guessing that
    the droids at his ISP had asked the OP to do provide his IP
    address - NO WAY was this meant to be an insult to
    Stuart, R D S or Rolyat! It was late and I'm getting old!

    Ahem, well yes, err...... if you put it like that, I see what you mean.
    Probably all down to my newsreader
    Yes they should have told him.
