Even in this forum, the IP you are at is logged. Don't freak out but go read more about how the internet works. For information to be sent back to your machine it has to reveal the return address.
Nothing about a firewall is at play here. That is for other issues.
And don't go "hiding my IP" as the scammers that want to sell you such are ... scammers.
I'm confused or surprised by something. I have ZoneAlarm Extreme Sucurity installed on my computer. I have the firewall turned on to my knowledge.
So how is it that I can go to any number of websites and they can tell me the IP address of my computer? They don't state my street address, but they can name the IP address and city and state. I thought if I had a firewall installed that this was not possible. Is this something to be concerned about? Is the product I have installed a failure? Is an IP address specific to the whole city, or is it my exact location?
