Your computer’s IP address (Internet Protocol) is, as the name suggests, an address that provides an identity for your device on a network. Whether it’s a local network within an intranet at a business, your home, or a massive network such as the Internet. Every website you visit on the Internet uses a unique IP address, too. But luckily for that, we can use simple names like Microsoft.com using DNS.
Why would you want to know your IP address, though? Well, we live in a world where we are surrounded by multiple devices that need to talk to each other. Whether it is connecting two computers together in a peer to peer fashion for sharing resources or for accessing another device remotely. Also, if you need to troubleshoot devices on a network, knowing your IP Address can help a lot.
