I just breezed over from Java TA. Whoohoo.
Anyway, my question is about how to detect the public IP address of my machine. I have a piddly two machine wireless router network. The two machines are peers, and if one is switched off, or both, it doesnt affect the IP address that the router holds, since as long as the router is on, then it retains it.
I need to know that public IP address, so that someone can find me from the 'net concerning my app., and obviously giving them the local IP (which my Java programme picks up when it asks for the machine's IP -) is no good.
How can I get the public IP? Many thanks for what you can do.
