_GetIP() not work in China

4 posts in this topic

_GetIP() uses:

http://checkip.dyndns.org, http://www.myexternalip.com/raw and http://www.bot.whatismyipaddress.com

The 'bot' address fails on DNS search. The first two work as expected from England.  However, my final code needs to work worldwide but there's an issue in China where all these URLs are blocked. So I need to (re)write _GetIP() to access a so far unknown Chinese equivalent of checkip../myexternalip..

I could use a ping but I don't know of a Chinese 'universal' IP address guaranteed to work.

Any clues as to how to resolve welcome.


The most powerful number in the Universe.  Zero.
