I have an old backup of a mac via time machine, and I was wondering if there is some sort of accessible file that would have the static IP of the old computer it was backed up from.

If you are curious, I am in IT and it is a PITA to get a new static IP here. I am just trying to use the old one to save some hassle.

I've tried searching through the system log with no success (but I might be doing it wrong- grep with a regexp for an IP).

Thanks!
