WhatsMyIP.org started in April of 2001 when I bought this domain name on a whim. This site was originally hosted on an Apple Mac Quadra 700, connected to a residential internet connection, and the IP Addresses were retrieved via AppleScript. We've come a very long way. If you want to see how long, check us out on Archive.org!

** Port Scanners, WhoIs & DNS, Website Rankings, Password Generator, MAC Address Lookup, etc., etc., etc.


VOIP Tips (rant) 

If you are going to be a VOIP provider you ARE going to be a network engineer.

  • If your vendor cannot provide you recommendations on the following - FIND A NEW VENDOR.
  • Your vendor vetting is EXTREMELY important.  Your vendor will easily be 70% of a successful installation.  95% of VOIP sales vendors will ask nothing about the current infrastructure or supply necessary requirements.  Understand that your customers really have no idea what VOIP is, they simply want phone service.
  • There is nothing VOIP cannot do versus an on-site PBX with the correct vendor and configuration.
  • You need to have commercial grade equipment for a successful installation that supports the settings requirements of VOIP (RTP and SIP traffic (QoS) and firewalls that are SIP/VoIP friendly).
  • Know and understand UDP.  You will need to configure or accommodate this for BLF (Busy Lamp Field).   
  • Know and understand QOS (quality of service) so you can prioritize traffic.
  • Large VOIP installations are going to most likely need a separate VLAN for voice.
  • Correctly configure your firewall to bypass trusted VOIP traffic without inspection.
  • You will need both LAN and WAN bandwidth. Example: Take the amount of phone connections times 100kpbs (check with your VOIP vendor) for a good approximation of just your voice needs.
  • Do not forget about VOIP security.  Make sure your vendor considers compliance and feature needs (spam calls, HIPAA, training, etc.).  Make sure you 911 is correctly configured.
