127.0.0.1 Is used for testing the functionality of your NIC. It's a loopback address. So yes, in a way, your NIC has two IP addresses. the 192.whatever address is used for other machines on the network to communicate with you. They cant access your machine with the 127 number, becasue they would be going through their own loopback address.

192.168.x.x is also you generic home network IP address. There are 3 different sets reserved for "private" use. If anyone wanted to make their network more secure I would recommend changing it as all routers come with the 192.168 as the prefix for its network. You can also use<br><br>
10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255<br>
172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255<br>
192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255<br><br>
Using a different prefix can help against outside attacks as they are usually based to only look for an 192.168.x.x IP.<br><br>
As for loopback it is used in the range of the 127 prefix, usually 127.0.0.1/2/8 but in specific networks it can use any address in the spectrum. Nothign can be sent to a WAN (i.e. Internet) from a network from these IP's unless specified (home routers dont usually have this option).

Actually, the 192.168.0.0 network is a default for many routers as well. I personally would use the 172.16.0.0 network. The 10.0.0.0 network is too widely known for me to feel comfortable to use.

</div>68.105.xx.xxx If that's not right try xxxxx.xxxxxxx.com thats my dynamic host name, my router updates their information with the correct IP everytime it changes.<br />
<br />
Good luck! The Belkin is built like a Greek Maze.

I am getting something else. I pmed the IP address to him and unless it changes often it is correct....<br />

Looks like it does change alot. Most ISPs can give you a static ip if you need one.

</div>Yeah it changed, but he gave his fqdn so it's easy to figure out what it is now. So far, it's pretty locked down. I'll let you know in a little bit.

</div>Those are all private networks, so it really doesn't matter which ones *most* people use. There is no need to feel more or less comfortable with chosing a private range to use. They all do the same job.

</div>That is true, however, I'm very paranoid. I figure that if someone gets into my network and since i dont have dhcp running, having an unknown IP range will be one more speed bump for the attacker to get anywhere.<br />
<br />
I guess i shouldn't allow my paranoia to freak others out.

</div>Understanding that it is just paranoia is the first step. <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" /> <br />

If someone was able to get into a properly protected network, figuring out the topology of your internal network probably won't be a challenge. <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

If they can get into the network in the first place..it wouldn't be too hard to find your router's I.P.<br><br>
go to run>command...and type in iponfig. it tells you it...<br><br>
they could do basically the same thing.

What type of Server? The whole thing wouldn't "just be open" small parts, or ports if you will, are available to the general public. HTTP = Port 80 open, FTP = Port 21 open, etc..
