Hi edrus.

I did such a program a few month ago.
The problem is that your pcs connected to the lan (router) do only have their local (lan) ip. The router is the only one that knows the wan ip; you can't get it with API calls!

2 possiblities:
- Connect to a website like, parse the website for the ip. Problem: What happens if this website is down???
- Try to communicate with your router (I did via telnet) and get the ip from it. You may have to get some technical information about your router to do so.

Best wishes,
