 I am using windows 2000 server to connect citrix server over internet. When I connects to citrix server I have to give citrix servers IP address . After connecting to citrix server  when I checks for static IP address it shows different IP address (This IP address is differnet than IP address when gives while connecting). I checked IP address as - right click My network places ->right click Local area connection ->properities->TCP/IP->properties.
   There is only one LAN card in the machine.

The address 203.124.*.* will be the external addres (public ip address) of the router of the network where the citrix server is located.
The router is configured to forward all incoming citrix traffic to the citrix server on the internal network (172.*.*.*) (private ip address)
This is a very normal configuration.

Listen i hoe i understood you correectly, but if you wonna see your ip adress while you connect to na other server,
you should go to a command line
and type:
ipconfig /all

you should also understand that there is a  deferentce between two ips, one is lan ip and the second is PPP ip.

Have fun

I posted this on another topic that you already created.  I'll repost it here:

==============

Okay, I think I'm reading your question correctly.  Just want to get some clarification.

1.  You're connecting to the Citrix server remotely using the IP 203.124.X.X.
2.  203.124.X.X is the external (Internet/public) IP address of your router
3.  172.X.X.X is your private networks IP range.

Assuming that all three of these are true then the IPCONFIG you are issuing from your Citrix session is reporting the correct information.  The IPCONFIG will NOT report the public address (203.124.X.X) as this is not a configured address on the server.
