Thanks for your question wdunc2009.

You have not provided much info.

The "normal" output for ipconfig is relative to the services that you have running.

What version of Windows are you running?

Can you post a screen shot of the ipconfig output? The output would all be internal IP addresses so it doesn't need to be protected as a security measure. You should block out your MAC Addersses as I have with X's or delete the data.

The typical output would be something like:[code]Windows IP Configuration

If you running Win7, there may be tunnel adapters and it will probably show IPv6 addresses as well.
