Hi all,
Is there a built in function/stored procedure in sql server that returns the external ip address?
similar to http://www.whatismyip.com

If there isn't one, how do I use http://www.whatismyip.com in sql code?

Many thanks in advance

Try this code

set nocount on
declare @ip varchar(255), @cmd varchar(100)
set @cmd = 'ping  -n 1 ' + HOST_NAME()
create table #temptb (grabfield varchar(255))
insert into #temptb exec master.dbo.xp_cmdshell @cmd
select @ip = substring( grabfield,  
                                        charindex('[',grabfield)+1,
                                        charindex(']', grabfield)-charindex('[',grabfield)-1   )
from #temptb  
where left(grabfield,7) = 'Pinging'
print @ip
drop table #temptb
set nocount off

and if you get a really weird set of results you may well be on a virtual box with IPV6, etc.

From outside the box I get
Pinging sys76.tekstlogik.com [192.168.7.59] with 32 bytes of data:
From inside:
Pinging sys76.tekstlogik..com [fe80::c0f3:b3a:9464:39a%11] with 32 bytes of data:
