IP address tool - What is my IP address

Recommended Posts

Guest

According to that site I'm anonymous.

According to my account name, what I say, where I act, what details I slowly leak, and much more - I'm not anonymous at all. That applies to most of us.

Well it did correctly get my IP address. Wrong location and post code though. There are loads of these sites out there, and none I have seen will usually get your accurate location.

I guess that's where my 3G connection, via fibre optic cable, terminates at True's server. I'm over 600 km away!

Gets its knickers in a twist if using a proxy seems as if I am in Istanbul !!!!!

Of course, that's the whole point of using a proxy...

Myran.

that is exactly why I used the proxy to see if the proxy was able to be identified.

It was not identified as a proxy service.

I use an I.P. address finder which actually tells me when an address is via a proxy; the tool also tells me if the site is known as a spamming site .Now that is a proper I.P. address identifying tool not some gimcrack half cock tool.

Because.....the location it reports will probably be that of the ISP, rather than yourself.

EG mine shows up as being in London whereas I'm actually some way south

See the attached screenshot, where I've (obviously) omitted the details and just left the table headings in situ. Under "ISP" it shows the name of the ISP itself.

This applies to dynamic ISPs - not sure about fixed ones
