you might want to be more specific about the questions you ask, but altaddr is a command line used for citirx to assign an external IP address to a Citrix server

From the citrix admin guide:

Use altaddr to query and set the alternate (external) IP address for a server running MetaFrame Presentation Server. The alternate address is returned to clients that request it and is used to access a server that is behind a firewall.

Syntax
altaddr [/server:servername] [/set alternateaddress ] [/v]
altaddr [/server:servername] [/set adapteraddress alternateaddress] [/v]
altaddr [/server:servername] [/delete] [/v]
altaddr [/server:servername] [/delete adapteraddress] [/v]
altaddr [/?]

Parameters

servername
The name of a server.

alternateaddress
The alternate IP address for a server.

adapteraddress
The local IP address to which an alternate address is assigned.

Options
/server:servername
Specifies the server on which to set an alternate address. Defaults to the current server.

/set
Sets alternate TCP/IP addresses. If an adapteraddress is specified, alternateaddress is assigned only to the network adapter with that IP address.

/delete
Deletes the default alternate address on the specified server. If an adapter address is specified, the alternate address for that adapter is deleted.

/v (verbose)
Displays information about the actions being performed.

/?
Displays the syntax for the utility and information about the utility’s options.

Remarks
The server subsystem reads the altaddr settings for server external IP addresses at startup only. If you use altaddr to change the IP address setting, you must restart the IMA Service for the new setting to take effect.

If altaddr is run without any parameters, it displays the information for alternate addresses configured on the current server.

Examples
Set the server’s alternate address to 1.1.1.1:
altaddr /set 1.1.1.1

Set the server’s alternate address to 2.2.2.2 on the network interface card whose adapter address is 1.1.1.1:
altaddr /set 2.2.2.2 1.1.1.1

Security Restrictions
None.

hahaha.. it's ok.  I'm not worried about the points.  It happens often especially for users that don't ask many questions (this was the first one posted by this user).  

usually it's just not as obvious, although since the question was so vague your answer is probably accurate lol.  I think I'm going to start using that as my first response to every Q now.

"what about it?"... hilarious :)
