Fixed _getIP()

Recommended Posts

The _getIP() function in the Inet.au3 file in the Include folder uses an out-of-date site (whatsmyip.com) that's down. I updated it to work with cmyip.com.

Here goes:

func _getIP()
    Local $ip
    If InetGet("http://www.cmyip.com", @TempDir & "\~ip.tmp") Then
        $ip = FileRead(@TempDir & "\~ip.tmp", FileGetSize(@TempDir & "\~ip.tmp"))
        FileDelete(@TempDir & "\~ip.tmp")
        $ip = StringTrimLeft($ip, 36)
        $ip = StringLeft ($ip, StringInStr($ip, "   - CMyIP.com</title>"))
        Return $ip
        Return -1

I don't understand the over complicated _GetIP that comes with Autoit. Why don't we just use something like this?:

#include <INet.au3>
Func GetWAN()
    Return _INetGetSource("http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/misc/ip.php")
