Local IP address

To get your local IP address, use your command prompt and either the command ipconfig or netstat.

Important: 127.0.0.1 is not the IP address of your computer (like localhost) and will only work on your computer and not on the mobile device!

Using ipconfig

Getting the IP address using ipconfig (German operating system)
  1. Click on Start in the task bar of Windows to open your start menu
  2. Click on Run
    • If not visible: Open Accessories >> Run
    • Alternative hotkey: press Windows-key + R
  3. Enter cmd and click OK
  4. A command prompt window will open
  5. Enter ipconfig into this command window
  6. A list of network adapters and its IP addresses appears
  7. Scroll to your adapter (e.g. Ethernet for LAN)
  8. The IPv4 address listed is your local IP address (e.g. 192.168.0.2)

Using netstat

Getting the IP address using netstat (German operating system)
  1. Click on Start in the task bar of Windows to open your start menu
  2. Click on Run
    • If not visible: Open Accessories >> Run
    • Alternative hotkey: press Windows-key + R
  3. Enter cmd and click OK
