  1. How to find out what IP address is being contacted by a specific app


    Hi guys, so I know this will sound funny but I work in a servicedesk and we all work from home due to covid-19. During this time we had to switch to a web client of the software for phone calls and it sucks. Now my boss has just put up with it but I would like to figure out how to configure the app to make it work out of the office network and for that I need to know what IP address is being contacted when I open the desktop app because that is when it says that the server is unreachable. I am convinced there must be a solution and knowing what IP address it is would be the starting point. I have no idea how to check it from within the app so maybe there is something like WireShark but simpler just for this single purpose? Thanks

    IP ADDRESS

    This problem usually sorts itself out automatically, but see the following for some suggestions:

    https://www.online-tech-tips.com/computer-tips/ip-address-already-in-use/


    If you keep getting these notifications, chances are that some device on your network is configured to use a static IP address that is within the range of addresses allocated by your router's DHCP server.

    If you need some help in sorting out a situation like this, please provide the following information:

    • the make and specific model of your router
    • the make and specific model of every device connected to your network, including printers, TV set top boxes, Internet of Things (IoT) devices, etc.
    If you have many devices connected to your network, download and run Advanced IP scanner (Advanced IP Scanner - Download Free Network Scanner.). This will list all of your currently-connected
    network devices and show their IP addresses.

  3. Finding IP address

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below to find printer’s IP address:

    1. Type Devices and Printers in the Windows search bar.
    2. Select on the printer and click on
      Manage.
    3. Click on the Ports tab.
      You will be able to find printer’s IP address under the ‘Ports’ tab.

    Few printers also have a “Test print” option on the printer. When you print a test page from network printer, the page shows the IP address along with other details.

    Note: If it is set on DHCP mode the IP address will constantly change.
    The IP address is assigned automatically by your router using a protocol called DHCP.

    Hope it helps.
