is it possible for 2+ users to have the same IP address? i thought it was, although now i'm not sure? i realize that IP addresses are meant to be unique to each server, but, as a supermod on a forum, when i do an IP search, sometimes it comes up with more than one user (from different locations, of course, not jut multiple accounts, i wouldn't think.) i read the tutorial, and it did help, but i'm still confused. is it possible for the numbers on different machines to be the same, as long as the abc.def.gh.wherever.net thing is different from machine to machine?

My IP address changes each time I log in to my ISP. If the ISP has a certain range of IP's that it assigns to the computers that log into it, it would make sense that different computers would show the same IP at different times.

Hi KK

I just tried the link you supplied above and it came up with an IP address that I know is not mine as that is always the same. Do you think it may be picking up the IP address of my ISP?

Cheers
