I hope i am in the right department for this questio!.


If i am remotely controlling a third party computer, which IP will be registered by any site that receives information from me?

Will it be the remote IP, or the IP of the computer which is controlling?


Many thanks and regards.

The public IP address of the machine you are connecting through.  If the machine is behind a router you will get the public IP address, not the 192.168.x.x address of the machine.  This is how VPNs protect your identity (though looking at the VPN logs you can be found).  You look like you are coming from the machine you are connecting through.  However if you connect to the site from your machine your public IP address will be the one that the site sees just as if you were connecting normally.  Just because you are connected to another machine does not mean all of your traffic goes through that machine.

Thank you very much. That is the answer i wanted to hear,  I shall be connecting to the site once i am connected to the remote, which is what i think you are referring to in your penultimate sentence.  Sorry but i really am a thicky when it comes to computers!


Sorry for the late reply but we have had many storms here in Philippines which does have a tendency to cock up the internet from time to time.All the best. JH
