There's a neat program out there called ICQ that may just solve your
problem, assuming, of course, that both of you are using PC compatibles
and not Macs. You can get it at www.mirabilis.com and it's free. If
each of you run it when you log on to your ISP and you have each other on
your notify lists, it will show you when your friend is on the Internet
and you can either message or chat to tell each other what your IP
addresses are or you can just look at the user information for your
friend and it will show his current IP address.
