I'm a total noob about TCP/IP, now reading some document (Sams Teach Yourself TCP/IP in 24 hours). However, I still don't get some concepts.
First of all, when I type "what's my ip address" in Google, it shows an address starting with 88.225 something, cool, but when I make this search from another computer in my home, it shows the exact same ip address. So it is probably the router's address for my ISP, right?
So how do I find my computer's (or network adapter's) ip address?
P.S. (a long one)
I need to know this because I want to setup a Unity Masterserver, in my old pc, which has ubuntu server installed. So any help about Ubuntu server - public(or static?) ip address setup is also much appreciated. But again, maybe everything will work if I know the public ip address of that machine.
That machine shows an ip like 192.168.1.36, and I can connect to it from my computer (connected to the same router) but of course not from another location. So I need to know it's "real(?)" ip address.
ipconfig in windows' cmd, nor
ifconfig in Ubuntu Server terminal gives useful information. They just print IP's that start with 255.255, and 192.168..
There is obviously something so simple, that I don' know, and you assume that I know. But I don't know what it is:) I'll just write my guesses here. Please tell me if they are irrelevant.
- Should I setup a static-ip instead of using DHCP. If so, how?
- Should I somehow "figure out" my IP from that "88.225.." one, combined with my "local ip" ?
