On Mac when I set up a wifi hotspot, the ip is easy to determine. But I set up my Windows 8 laptop as a wifi hotspot and am unable to figure out its IP. I need the Ip in order to set up socketServers. I tried IPCONFIG /ALL in cmd but I get a list of Physical Addresses for all adapters.

Try just ipconfig, without /all. It should come up with something like this:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :

Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : xxxx::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx%xx

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :


Look for all occurrences of IPv4 Address. Choose the one you need based on the entry's name (like Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection in the example above).
