-    To learn your IP address on OS X, Linux, BSD, etc, run "ifconfig". On
-    Windows, go to the Start menu, click Run and enter "cmd". At the command
-    prompt, enter "ipconfig /a".

-    If you are behind a NAT or firewall, though, your IP address will be
-    within the range of 10.XXX.XXX.XXX, 192.168.XXX.XXX, or 172.16.XXX.XXX -
-    172.31.XXX.XXX, which is not your public IP address. In this case, you
-    should check your IP address with one of the sites above without using
-    Tor, and then check again using Tor to see whether your IP address has
-    changed.
