While trying to exchange IP addresses to play an online game, I went to IPChicken.com, but that IP didn't work (that is, the game didnt recognize that IP as my server on the other player's end). In the game, it gives a completely different address, but it looks suspiciously like what I believe "local" IP addresses are. It is something like 126.96.36.199, and isn't that just referring to my postion on my LAN? So how do I get the correct IP address? Could my ZoneAlarm or router be messing me up? Im using XP Home.
