IRC ---- tcp/ip confusion
When i do a ifconfig i get the following :Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:70:D6:07:DE
inet addr:192.168.101.58 Bcast:192.168.101.255 Mask:255.255.255.0"
ip 192.168.101.58 which seem to be correct.
When i connect to irc however (mystery.lagnet.org.za) it show that my ip is 188.8.131.52 reading from the whois in xchat.
What ip is it showing there? when i used windoze it showed the same ip in irc as when i did a ipconfig.
Please assist to clear the confusion.
Thank you very much for all the time. :?:
