I could swear I used to know how to do this, and can't believe how much of a hard time I'm having trying to search for it online.

How do I get information on the current IP address(es) assigned to my Windows Phone? I'm looking for the local address(es) - not the IP that's facing the Internet.

You want the locally assigned IP address when connected via wifi? – Neil Turner Aug 30 '14 at 13:44

As far as I know WP isn't supporting manual IP configuration, so there's no way looking for your so called 'local address'. If you're connected to a network via wifi your phone gets assigned an temporary IP (through DHCP).

To see the network-specific assigned IP address (under WP8), go to the "Wi-Fi" settings on your phone, hold down your finger on the appropriate network and select "Edit".
