Re: [HN9000] A very static dynamic IP

Whether you have static or dynamic IP, the http sites will never show what your IP is, only the proxy. If you want to see the IP of your modem (which you could just look in the modem to see), you have to use https

I suspect the easiest way to do that is to go to Google, make sure that it is https (now the Google default) and type What's my IP and you should see it at the top ahead of the search results.

Hughes dynamic IPs aren't meaningful, because you can't use them for anything with all ports closed. Only static accounts can use the IP for anything.

The test sites show Kansas (middle of the country) when they have no idea where the IP is actually located.
