get your external IP

First off I am not a network technician, but a partner has set up an SFTP site so we can send them some data across. They need our external IP address, as we access the Internet via a corporate proxy server, how could we/I get the external IP? Can I get it from my computer via any specific command?

You cannot get your external address from your computer.

The first question, is your proxy server going through theinternet through an adsl router?

Also, do you know if your router has static ip or dynamic ip? These information are needed to be able to find the way to get your external ip.
