    How can i find a public IP like (206.236.122.45) available free, means not assigned to anyone. in other words, How can i scan (alive/dead) OR unassigned public IPs in the world?

    Re: Public IPs

    There are no "Free" IP's - they're all owned by someone. (This is why IPv6 was invented - because IPv4 ran out of IP addresses). So - you may be able to find public IPs which are not currently in use, but to try to use it would be illegal.

    Apart from that, what device would you assign it to, and how would you be connected to the Internet? I think InterNic would have to be involved and would have to "authorise" that IP address from that location.

    Further to this, you would need a direct connection to the Internet (as opposed to connecting via an ISP) which is mucho dollar.

    So - you might find IP addresses which are not in use, but the barriers to using them yourself would be huge...

      Also, is there a reason why you are looking for an IP? Another goal you are tying to accomplish? If so, please state it so that we can help you with it in the correct manner.

        Since you are already connected to the internet (your post did not arrive by carrier pigeon ), just ask your ISP for a "static IP". They may charge a bit for it, but it should be a few $ a month only.
