A site about the MacIP protocol

Telnet

Not much used anymore. But nice to use on an old Mac!

On a old Mac use NSCA telnet.

What could you do with it? Well..   this:

 

Many people use sites like http://www.whatismyip.com or http://www.ipchicken.com to identify the public IP address of an unfamiliar network.

Telnet to ip.blindhog.net or 184.105.238.114 if you do not have a web browser (router, switch, linux).
Note: the original domain name was v4address.com but it has not worked for a while.

[josh@webserver ~]$ telnet ip.blindhog.net
