    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

  7. ipconfig executet, but

    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.
