----EDIT END----

I believe this is where this topic would go.

Okay. I'm having a bit of an issue with Open Canvas 1.1 .
When I had first downloaded it, I had been able to use the networking no problem, it would show my external IP address like it is supposed to.
Now. Whenever I use it, it shows my local private Network (Router)'s IP. the "" one.
And Because of this second option, I'm unable to do any sort of networking using my computer as the hub.

Now I've used http://dragoncast.de/dokumente/oc_tutorial.pdf as a tutorial to get it to work. But it just isn't working.
I have done as it says. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v304/Tel...m-PrivateIP.png but it still will not show the Public IP Address

Is it because of my router type? I have a 2wire 3800HGV-B, with At&t as my service provider.

As well, Microsoft Firewall has it set to allow this program access... Yet it still isn't working.

Please, any help with this would be... greatly appreciated.

Other Images that may help.

Networking with open Canvas

I believe you'd be better off in the networking forum
