All,

Greetings. I need to know what my IP address is out on the internet. We have a router/network here, so when I do an ipconfig all I get is the typical 192.168.xx.xx which I understand is an INTERNAL address. Anyway, I'm having problems with my Exchange/domain and I need to know the actual address.

go to www.ipchicken.com

that is the public IP address of your server.

Quick follow up. The number it reports back is the same if I do it from my server, or if I do it from my client PC. Is that typical? Does that mean that the address is the address of the domain server (the server in question)? Just double-checking

That means that your firewall has no static nat for that server. That server cannot be accessed from outside your network with a public address. If it's an exchange server, it should report a public IP address when you go to www.ipchicken.com. Well, I guess it depends on your setup .. :)
