How to get my public IP by using VBScript

Dear sir,

  I would like to do the following:

  Write a script / program to get the public IP address that I'm using
  Send this IP address by using SMTP to specific e-mail address

  It will be great if you can provide a full sample code.  Thank you very much.

Regards,
Towo2002

Hi

I'm not sure if this is possible with VBScript although it is with server-side includes:

<!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"-->

As for the sample code, I'm not too familiar with VBScript, but you'd probably Dim a variable to equal <!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR"--> and then send the mail (which I'm not sure how to do unfortunately)

I just tried this and it works fine. I remember i had problems before with permission setting up CDO.mail. I put this script in an asp page and when the page loaded i recieved a mail containing my IP address almost instantly.


set objMail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
            
objMail.To = <your e-mail address>
objMail.From = <your e-mail address>

'set up the mail configuration information
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = <smtp server>
objMail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25
objMail.Configuration.Fields.update

'message details
objMail.Subject = "My Ip Address"
objMail.HTMLBody  = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")

'send the mail
objMail.Send

'display confirmation or an error message to the asp page
if Err.number = 0 then
      Response.Write "Sent Mail<hr>"
else
      Response.Write err.number & ";" & err.Description
end if
       
set objMail = nothing


Hope this helps,

Steve
