Update 20 Nov 2007: Certificate has been updated, now the “Certificate Expired” will not appear for the next 10 years.
So why does anyone would like to know this information? With the information, I can verify if the DHCP server on my WiFi router has given my phone a valid IP address. In general, I can check if there is something wrong with my connection, or just to see whether a public access point gives me a public IP or private IP (i.e behind NAT).
I have been waiting for kind of freeware utility to become available (like IpView on my Nokia 7610), but since now one has written yet, I decided to do a quick coding. I wrote this just a few hours ago and haven’t tested much, so you may find bugs. I was going to implement ping functionality, but it turned out that pinging requires special capability, so I’ll just have to skip that for now.
You can download this simple program here: ifinfo.SIS. I will release this an open source program after I clean up the code.
Update: this is the IfInfo source code (released under GPL).
