I don't know if the average player can see your IP or not, but server admins certainly can. Admins need this function, so even if I knew a way around it (& I don't) I wouldn't tell.

If you don't want to be attacked, you should secure your computer properly with a firewall. You can't hide forever.

Anytime to connect to anything using either your Ethernet or your Wifi, the device you are connecting to will have your IP. This is just the way internet protocal goes (I'm not an expert by no means). Weither you connect to a website (like Smokin' Guns or this one) or to the SG game servers.

Only admins on our site are allowed to see your IP address and only admins on the game server are allowed to see your IP address. This is mainly used for misbehavior punishment (cheats, teamkills, verbal abuse, spam, etc).
