I want to get the external Ip address of a computer. The computer has two IP addresses, one on the PPP adapter and one on the local network connection.

I want the one that can be seen from the internet.

It'll be passed into a batch file so i would consider a great answer to be if someone could parse the ipconfig details:


Windows 2000 IP Configuration

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

      Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
      IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
      Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
      Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :

PPP adapter BT Yahoo! Broadband:

      Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
      IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 81.154.249.XX
      Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.255
      Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 81.154.249.XX

(I've convered the last two octets for security reasons but they would be there!)

Can anyone help me parse this file or get me the IP address another way?

Thanks

Nope....doesn't work.

Doesn't even seem like a similar question if you ask me. Can someone parse the IP Address in the bottom half of the print out (above) and give me the code to do it?

Thanks

Okay! I have made in the past a batch file that does exactly that!

------Start of Batch Script!-----
@echo off
:: edit the two lines Below for your subject line and your email address
set to=someone@domain.com
set sub=Subject_line

for /f "tokens=2* delims=:" %%a in ('ipconfig ^| find "IP Address"') do set ip=%%a
set sub=%sub: =+%
start mailto:%to%?subject=%sub%^&body=The+IP+is;+%ip%
exit
-----End of Batch Script!-----

Good Luck!
