A computer's server address, also known as the IP address, is similar to a street address that uniquely identifies your computer. A program may need this number to access your computer from a remote location. The server address is also useful when troubleshooting network errors and connection problems. The computer server address is often public and is transmitted during the sending and receiving of computer network data.
