IP a computer?

Post by smartcard1 » Tue Mar 01, 2011 12:15 pm

Do I understand that an IP address is that of an individual computer or might it be a provider therefore several persons might have the same IP?

It doesn't necessarily mean that of just one computer. Due to DHCP & NAT, one ip address can belong to more than one computer or network.

I received a message seemingly designed to promote jealousy and seemingly from Panama, that has the same Medellin, Colombia IP address (190.71.149.234) as the computer of someone well known by me in Medellin. What are the odds? 10,000 to 1?
