Frequently asked questions

How do I find out my IP address

  • The easiest way to find you IP address is to use the IP address lookup tool at http://www.cam.ac.uk/cs/myip/
    If you have a laptop in college you will probably have a different IP address to computers inside and outside the University domain. If you are trying to get access Eviews or Stata from college, it is the internal address you need to tell IT Support.

Alternative method

  • On Windows Vista and XP, click Start and then Run, or press the Windows key and R at the same time
  • Type cmd in the box and then click OK
  • In the window that appears, type ipconfig and press return/enter
  • In the screens of information that follow, look for the section titled "Ethernet adaptor Local Area Connection" or similar
