@IPAddress1 is incorrect

7 posts in this topic

How come @IPAddress1 is not the same as if I go to www.whatismyip.com?

Your Thread title is misleading :)

To answer your question: My guess is that you are connected to the Internet via a NAT router meaning that your PC's NIC has a different IP address than your Public Internet Ip address since that address is assigned to your router.

So there is no way to get the "whatismyip" IP?

real quick and dirty:

#include <INet.au3>
#include <String.au3>
MsgBox(0, "from IPAddress1", @IPAddress1 )
$source = _INetGetSource( "http://whatsmyip.org" )
$IP = _StringBetween( $source, "Your IP is ", "</title>" )
MsgBox( 0, "From whatsmyip.org", $IP[0] )

I am sure there are about a hundred ways to do this better, but this is what I threw together real quick.

This will get the ip address returned from the site you mentioned.

EDIT: There will be ways to do this without connecting to an external site, maybe by connecting to the router, or telnet to the router... lol, or just wait for somebody that knows more than me to post :) where are you now Geo? Penguins? (the one time I actually want to see you correct me after I post LMAO)

_GetIP() is included in v3.2.10.0

#include <Inet.au3>
$PublicIP = _GetIP()
MsgBox(0, "IP Address", "Your IP Address is: " & $PublicIP)

Edit: It pretty much does what danwilli wrote but it uses two sites in case one

is down.
