see /usr/sbin/ipinfo

This has been discussed many times. If you don't like it remove it.

Sorry me so laxy. I did take a look and my old Lupu 528-005
does connect to 198.101.241.44 I have had the OS running now
since about 6AM and still now 10.13 it still list it in the IPstat
that comes up if one click on the icon in tray. It says
FIN_WAIT1 whatever that refers to.

I should look in /usr/sbin/ipinfo now
it says?

var0="`wget -O - -q icanhazip.com`"



I remember from other threads that
icanhazip.com` is what General Hayden server may be named.

So it would be possible to change that name but most likely it
only last for that session and get back when one reboot?

So either a very innocent way to check that it works
or a CIA way to have total control through Linux?


Should have read the next page of the thread....

I'm Major Hayden and I operate icanhazip.com. The purpose of the site is to allow people to find their external IPv4/IPv6 address with zero advertisements, cookies, or tracking of any kind. I work for a pretty large hosting company and I'm able to provide the service to people free of charge.

It sounds like Puppy Linux has been updated to query my site to figure out the external IP address of machines running Puppy Linux. I didn't make that change and I didn't have any input on the change.

With that said, I have absolutely no issues with Puppy Linux using my site and I welcome any other questions or comments you have about icanhazip.com.

As an aside, you should know that:


neither of my parents have Hayden as their last name
I have zero affiliations with any government agencies (I work for a large hosting provider)
I welcome any comments or questions that you have



You can find me on freenode as 'rackerhacker' if you want to get in touch.

Sorry now that you remind me then I remember that exact post.
so typical of Nooby I can not rely on my memory but I did suggest
that it was a known thing in my first post?

I am in Zeven OS now and xUbuntu so would be cool to know if
them also use same IP how does one look?

There were some official (Barryk) 5.3 Precise series beta releases.

There was also this http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=80431

Thanks Hogweed. I was aware of the "ov" variant and actually tested it. It was easily identified by the presence of "ov" in the sfs file of the iso. The one I have is clearly Precise 5.3.0 and does not have some of the packages included in "ov".

Probably a beta then. I wonder if the 5.4 devx willsuffice for compiling software as this version is working extremely well on my Acer Aspire laptop.

So the last sentence on the first page of the forum thread ends like this last year:

Nooby:

And then ends with the post as seen above... last year...

What i feel I can not understand what is solved?
