About dynamic IP

Hi folks,

I'm running ADSL broadband connection with dynamic IP address.

# ifconfig
Code:
....
ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:58.152.xxx.xxx  P-t-P:219.78.xxx.xxx  Mask:255.255.255.255
.....
inet addr always changes on each connection and P-t-P almost remains the same. Which of them is IP address

Is it
inet = Internal Networking conferences
P-t-P = "Picture Transfer Protocol" OR "Peer to Peer"
?

What is inet addr?

TIA

B.R.

inet addr is your ip address
P-t-P means Point-to-Point, i.e. this is the server of your ISP you connected to.
