Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC
I dont know my IP address so I can ping the remote computer
Go to start -- run and type in CMD
hit enter to open a black command prompt window
type in "ipconfig" without the quotes and hit enter. This will give you your IP address.
If you need the IP address from your provider that you are using out on the public internet, just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ and it will tell you what your external public IP address is.

First of all, you need to know there are two types of IP addresses.
Public IP address
Private IP address
"Public" means an IP address can be reached from the Internet, while "private" means it can't. For example, in a typical home network, a router has a public IP address on the Internet. The computers, smartphones, game consoles, and other devices behind the router all have unique private IP addresses on the home network. The router acts as an intermediary, forwarding traffic to the local IP addresses that request it. From an outside perspective, all devices on the home network are communicating with the Internet from a single public IP address.
When you're hosting a server on your computer, people on the Internet will need the public IP address of your router to connect to your server. People behind your router - on the same local network as your computer - will need the local IP address from your computer to connect.
Note: If your computer is connected directly to the Internet with no router sitting in between, your computer's IP address is a public IP address.
How to find Your Private IP address:
There are several way to find out your Private IP address.
