Remote IP Address

Hello. How would i go about getting the remote IP address for a computer? Thanks in advance.

Spyro.. Honestly, you have been here a long time. You should know how to go about posting questions by now.

Give MORE information. Do you have a hostname of the remote computer and just need to resolve its IP? Do you just want the external IP of the computer the script is running on? Or is it some other circumstance?

There is no such thing as too much information.

Hello. How would i go about getting the remote IP address for a computer? Thanks in advance.

I use a script that runs ipconfig on the remote computer and then parses out the ip addresses (and mac id's). However, if the network card is disabled, it will not get the ip address. I use PSEXEC from Sysinternals to run my script on the remote machine. You can pass the output of ipconfig to the clipboard using the WindowsXP utility "clip.exe" which comes with the resource disk. Of course, as Simucal says, this may have nothing to do with what you really want...

I am soo sorry. I was in a hurry. I just need to get the external IP of the computer that the script is running on.

Just use ipconfig locally and parse the ip address the same way.

Um, i need the script to do that.

If you have the ability to edit the script before it next runs, the built in Macros of @IPAddress1...4 should do what you need.

Best of luck,

What ever. I just figured it out on my own. wrote my own function...

func getremoteip()
;       Function By Brad Reddicopp
InetGet ( "http://www.whatismyip.com/" ,"C:\temp.dat" , 1)
$html = fileread("C:\temp.dat")
$html = StringAddCR ($html)
filedelete("C:\temp.dat")
filewrite("C:\temp.dat", $html)
$line = FileReadLine ( "C:\temp.dat", 31)
$ip = StringTrimLeft ( $line, 15)
$ip = StringTrimRight ( $ip, 5)
filedelete("C:\temp.dat")
return $ip
endfunc

That's what I meant. Run ipconfig through your autoit script on whatever machine you want. When you get the output, sort through it for the ip addresses that you get back.

If it's the external ip address of your router then you may have to use whatismyip.com. Do you know who owns that site? Just wondering if it's legit?

This site is even cleaner: http://www.whatismyip.org/

Try this:

#include <inet.au3>
$xip = _InetGetSource("http://whatismyip.org/")
MsgBox(1,$xip,$xip)

Who needs puzzles when we have AutoIt!!

He's actually looking for the "outside" address of his network. The one that an outsider would attempt to connect to. @IPAddress2 is, I believe, the ip address of the second network adapter that is on the local machine. In the case of a machine that is a proxy server, that would also be the "outside" address, but in a NAT network, that would just be another internal NAT ip address.

It does not explicitly say so in the help file but _GetIp() returns the public (Internett) address of my network. That is the address after the third firewall in my case. I'm only using the beta (126).

You are correct sir! inet.au3 uses an external website as well to retrieve the outside ip address of your network. I guess the fundamental question is: which external website do I not only trust, but do I expect to be around longer than my code is in use?

I know, have hacked it at least once to use my ISP's server :D

If you have access to your outermost firewall you could use information from it. At least a reasonably new one has a web interface (goes for *DSL modems to).

I think GRC would be the best - IMHO. Besides there is a lot of other great things from this site.

Look at the bottom of the page.
