IP addresses are normally fixed or allcated by the ISP (Internet Service provider).The ISP can be an organisation for which you work in which case Kully would be from the same organisation (it is unlikely that IP addresses would be split at the fourth octet - e.g. the last part of the address, across different organisations) If however you dial in to an ISP (as you would from home) then it just means Kully uses the same ISP as yourself. Your IP ends in 68 and Kully's in 69 - it's not the same IP. If you were both signed on at the same time you cant have the same IP address. It is possible however that he logged on to the same ISP sohrtly after you were allocated your IP. He was then allocted the next one in the range. There's a bit more to it than that - it's to do with IP lease expiration time - I shant go in to that now - this is Gurdas Maan discussion board and not a lesson in TCP/IP
My apologies if I bored anyone.
Jiyo and khush raho - always!
