Networking, how to resolve IP addressing

Hello,

First of all, we all know that all computer have unique IP address given by your ISP unless or otherwise you are connected only to a proxy server.

So this means that all you need to know is how to check your IP address and if you are connected to a specific one. Please see following procedures to determine whether you can connect to a specific address:

1. Check your TCP/IP configuration

  • An incorrect configuration for this could lead to communication problems. So check your Event Viewer system log if you are using Windows NT/2000. If you find an error in this log then contact your network admin.
  • If no errors, do this instead, type ipconfig at the command prompt and check if the given IP address and subnet mask display the correct values for your pc.

2. Ping the loopback address

  • To verify that TCP/IP works properly, type ping 127.0.0.1 at the command prompt and check if this displays:

Pinging 127.0.0.1 with 32 bytes of data:

 

   Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=<10ms TTL=128

   Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=<10ms TTL=128

   Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=<10ms TTL=128

   Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time=<10ms TTL=128

 

NOTE: if you receive an error message at this point, your TCP/IP is not working properly. You must reinstall TCP/IP.

3. Ping your PC’s IP address.

  • If you can successfully ping the above procedure then you will try to ping your IP address using the IPCONFIG.
  • Type ping <ip address>, a message response will similarly prompt as the procedure above. If not, try to reinstall your network adapter driver.

4. Try to Ping using other computers

  • Follow procedure 1 to 3 and If this works, then try to contact your network administrator to check your network connection from your server to your pc.
