Each computer that is connected to the network and Internet has a unique address, the IP address.

An IP address consists of 4 numbers varying between 0 and 255, each number separated by a. (dot).

Some examples:

134.184.129.3
164.15.128.3
193.190.198.53

Computers that are part of the VUB network have an IP address of the form 134.184.*.*, for ULB computers the IP address is 164.15.*.*

To find out the IP address of your computer, can you use the following webpage:

http://www.vub.ac.be/BFUCC/cgi-bin/isipreg.cgi

This page also indicates if your IP address is registered with the networkteam (this SHOULD be the case).

Note

There is also IPv6, which used IP addresses with 6 numbers from 0 to 255. These are currently not used at the university.
