    Smile what is the difference about ip address between the local and remote

    my PC system is the ubuntu of linux,

    local ip address XXx.XXX.XXX.XXx
    remote ip address XXx.XXX.XXX.XXx
    primary DNS address XXx.XXX.XXX.XXx
    secondary DNS address XXx.XXX.XXX.XXx

    local address is the address of your machine on your local lan
    remote address is the address that your modem is using to access the internet

    DNS is the server to be asked for IP addresses or host names.
    It is given as an IP to avoid a chicken/egg problem.
