Is there a way to have my machine report it's IP address after it
reboots?

I've been to LAN parties where I need to hook up a monitor, keyboard
and mouse to my server because someone popped the breaker it's on.
Sometimes the server returns to the same IP address, sometimes not.
The computer restarts but I need to make sure the servers are running.
I thought maybe something like Xfire IM would let me do it, but I
can't seem to figure out how. A friend once told me he accomplished it
because Comcast changed the IP his server used often.


Thanks in advance

Bill

I meant REMOTLY.

I don't want to hook up a keyboard mouse and monitor. The server runs
attached to the backbone of the LAN headless.

Pinging the machine by name will reveal it's IP address.

Change the server to have a static ip address. in the network
properties or find the mac address and do it at the router which may
be a better idea

a friendly hello at first.

As you can see when you scroll a little you will find, that i have more than
one active connection.

This surprises me. What can i do that there is only one connection via the
DSL/LAN Cable?
Is it nessescary to have more than one outgoing point?

Now you say.

Although 'report it's IP address' to where is another issue.

Put a sticker on your server with the MAC address. Wander over to the
server / router and look at the DHCP lease / arp table.

This avoids having to know the OS or where to send / view remotely on
whatever.

dyndns.com
no-ip.com

Then you use the IP name that you recorded rather than hope you use
the current IP address. For DynDNS, for example, I suggest that you
use their client that runs on the host to which you want to connect
even if behind a NAT router. Some NAT routers include support for
DynDNS except that they often do not report an IP address change to
the DynDNS server unless there is a change in the IP address but that
could be months away but a free DynDNS definition expires after a
month or two.
