I am confused (for a change?)
My cable modem connection works like a charm, so maybe I should
leave it alone. But I am confused about my IP address and that of
the host to which I am connecting.
With the ppp0 interface, I can find both the remote and the local
IP addresses, but with the eth0 interface, ifconfig reports only
one address, which it calls "inet addr:". Is that me? Or is it my
ISP? I have assumed it is my ISP, and have used it as such in my
firewall script, which is working great. But then what is my own
IP address, the one that used to be called a local IP address
I am seeing weird entries in my firewall log with destination
addresses matching what ifconfig calls the "inet addr:" and I am
not sure if that is my address, or my ISP's?
Any advice will be handsomely rewarded.
