What is an IP Address? How can i find my IP Address?

IP Address is in short, the address of your computer. Using this address it is identified over the internet and your local network. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country- or region-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the location from which a computer is connecting to the Internet.

If you are interested to know your IP Address, read What’s your IP Address?

 

How to Use this List? Can you give some Example Usages?

Well, to take practical scenarios, First example to take from this list is that it can be used to identify the location of a particular IP. This could be the IP of the person who sent you a mail on your Yahoo Mail account or IP of the person who sent you a mail on your Gmail account

The other example usage can be testing your web application for geo-targeting. If you have a web application which geo-targets content based on the end user’s IP address, you can use any of the IP Address listed against the country of your choice and test your Web Application. This can be done by enabling and Modifying the X-Forwarded-For header in the HTTP Request. To do this, you can either use Fiddler or Modify HTTP Headers.  

The X-Forwarded-For (XFF) HTTP header is a de facto standard for identifying the originating IP address of a client connecting to a web server through an HTTP proxy or load balancer. This is a non-RFC-standard request header which was introduced by the Squid caching proxy server’s developers.

Also, if you are a geek, you can develop your own script to figure out the location of a particular IP Address using the IP Address Blocks given in the list released by Nirsoft.

Can you List any other website which helps me find the location of a given IP Address?

Yes. Try out IP2Location

The Ultimate Student Resource List

Check out this ultimate and exhaustive list of free software and useful websites. Though, the title sounds more for students but believe me the list is relevant for everyone and not just limited to students.

Student Resources

Student Resources

Some of the very interesting softwares covered are FreeMind; free mindmapping software, Zotero; A bibliography manager that integrates with Firefox, allowing you to automatically add webpages and, more usefully, resources from academic databases like J-Stor and AnthroSource to your bibliography. 

Interestingly, the list also covers some very useful internet research resources like encyclopedias and online study guides. Worth a look, especially for those who are looking out for Student resources.

Some additions to the list maybe

1.)  del.icio.us: del.icio.us is a great service for bookmarking interesting articles and other useful links on your university’s webpage. Tag lots to make searching for bookmarked links or articles easier,later. Its better than bookmarking stuff on your browser. You can also check out other reader’s bookmarks.


2.) Invest in a good flash and load it up with portable apps like
OpenOffice, Firefox, and Pidgin amongst others. 


3.) Calendar. Having a good calendar (as well as a to do list) is a big booster in staying organized and keeping on top of assignments. Try using
Google Calendar
