About ICQ/IP

ICQ/IP is an add-on application to the popular ICQ program. With ICQ/IP your friend's dynamic IP addresses are put into your local host table making them seem static. This allows you to play games, share resources, or whatever needs an ip address with a static host name.  Oh, by the way, ICQ/IP is absolutely FREE!!!  If you like it, you can   any money to me for writing this useful application.  Also, please check out Shadow Screamers, a cool unsigned band I help out with a lot of talent, a CD, & potential.

ICQ/IP has been tested & works with ICQ2000 v4.31 Build 3143 & should work with all other versions!


Why I wrote ICQ/IP (A more detailed explanation about what ICQ/IP does)
I have a friend with a lotus notes server on a ppp dynamic ip account.  We both have ICQ.  Whenever I needed to connect to his notes server I needed a name to get to it (notes only uses names, not ip #).  I would look in ICQ, get his ip, update my host table & go from there.  ICQ/IP was written to do this lookup & editing for me.  Also, this allowed me to ping, ftp, telnet, etc. to his host name instead of ip address if needed.  Any game that asks for a host name or IP address I now use the host name instead of looking in icq user properties to get the ip address.

Create a subdirectory for ICQ/IP to reside & unzip the file into it. Make sure to keep the DLL file in the same subdirectory as the executable. Once you run the application it will ask you for the location of your host table. For Windows 9x it is c:\windows\hosts (no extension). For Windows NT it is c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc\hosts.
