Your IP-address is:
This page is for anyone who needs help with his
computer. More information at the bottom
of the page.
This is your external ip-address that you have
been assigned by your ISP i.e. Internet Service Provider (Telia,
Bredbandsbolaget, Tele2, Tre etc). If you use a router , it's
the address of the router that is displayed. On your internal
network you have another address.
(If you use a proxy, the ip-address of the proxy
is displayed instead.)

This page is intended for you if you are a grandmother,
a grandfather, or just anyone that wants to get help with your computer
by someone else that is far away.
Grandmother Berta usually gets help by her grandson
Hubert, called Hubbe. Unfortunatly, Hubbe has moved to Tokyo, or was
it Bagarmossen? Anyway, he cannot just pop over to his grandmother Berta
och fix her computer. In stead, he tries to help her by using a remote
control software. So he needs to know the ip-address of his grandmother
Berta, otherwise he cannot connect to her computer.
One day Hubbe discovers this page. Then he asks
his belowed grandmother Berta to surf here and send her ip-address to
his e-mail address in Tokyo, or read it aloud over the phone if it was
Bagarmossen he had moved to. As soon as he managed to connect to his
grandmother Bertas computer, he made a shortcut to this page on her
desktop. From now on, she can easily let him know her ip-address whenever
she needs help.
She is so pleased with her inventive grandson,
who can help her with the computer, although he as moved to Tokyo, or
was it Bagarmossen? Anyhow, you can always count on Hubbe!
Are you helping your dad?
Do you have a dad or a mum that you use to help with his/her computer?
Or is it a granny or a grandpa? Or maybe a friend? In that case, you
can recommend this page, to make it more easy to help them by means
of some remote access software (remote desktop software).
Most remote control programs are variants of VNC
or of remote
desktop, RDP, see also the
comparison at Wikipedia of a number of such programs. Maybe you
are already using some program for remote control and have encountered
the problem that the person you intend to help cannot find his ip-address
in an easy way.
This page is designed to make it easy for the user to read his ip-address
(large font) and read it aloud (no unnecessary information). It's also
possible for the user to send his ip-address in an easy way, but that
presupposes that he can manage to enter the e-mail address of the receiver
in his own e-mail program e.g. Thunderbird.
It will be even more easy if you make a shortcut to this page on your
dad's desktop on your next visit.
The very best solution is to get the ip-address automatically. That's
why I have written Grandma-tools
that sends the user's ip-address to Dropbox.
