Hi there fellow GAIM-ers.

My wife has had to re-boot our cable modem and now my home PC's IP address (or
rather the router I use) has changed.

Is there any way I can use gaim to determine my new IP address as my wife is
*way* too busy with our two small children for me to interrupt her and get her
to tell me the address.

TIA

Craig

If you mean can you use your 'remote' copy of gaim to check the external IP
address of the 'local' copy of gaim that is running at home then sometimes,
sort-of. Any direct connection between you and your computer at home will require
the home external IP be made known to your remote computer, however gaim is
unlikely to display this information anywhere (other than perhaps in the Debug
Window.) So attempt to start a Direct Connection, or a File Transfer (on some
of the protocols) and have your wife accept it. Then watch the Debug Window
(and ideally a network monitor on your computer) and you should hopefully get
the address.

There are a couple of non-GAIM solutions to this:

1) See if your router supports dyndns.org.  If it does, register a free dynamic
DNS for your Internet connection: https://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/

You can use that to ping your public IP address.

2) Create a bookmark/shortcut to http://www.whatismyipaddress.com/, which would
give your wife a quick way to read it off to you.
