I have 3 computers routed to a modem via a router. I am only concerned with 1 of the computers.
I have Xp on the computer with high speed cable internet.
First off...assume I have just heard of ip addresses today...I know very little about them. I have learned today though that when I send an e-mail, the ip address of my modem is the one that the reciever on the other end can see...please inform me if this is not correct.
Also, from what I've read here so far...it appears that an ip address may not be able to be changed programatically at will...but what I would like to do is this...
Write a VB6 app that I just click the button and the ip address of my modem changes instantly, or somthing that at least would make my next activity appear as if it came from a different ip address. I can write the code to come up with the random address...I just need the code to change the address of my modem and preferably not my computer's ip address..which would be the second ip address in line....(the computer is first, then the modem is next)
This has to be with VB6. No 3rd party stuff...and preferebly not a link to a long complicated explanation or solution...cause I probably wouldn't be able to understand that anyway...:-(
Can this be done?
Thanks fellow experts!
