Func _GetIP() issues

Reported by: autoit@… Owned by:
Milestone: Component: AutoIt
Version: 3.3.0.0 Severity: None
Keywords: _GetIP() Cc:

Description

The current _GetIP() function found in Inet.au3 uses
checkip.dyndns.org and whatismyip.com

You will find that the "whatismyip.com" lookup will always fail.

The _GetIPx() function I have provided proves that it never works.

I have also provided an improved function called _GetIP2().

It makes of a more reliable ip lookup service provided by
akamai.com" by default.

It also has the option to specify various other sources.
Examples are provided.

I attempted to attach the file to the ticket but I got the following error:

Submission rejected as potential spam (Maximum number of external links per post exceeded, Akismet says content is spam)

I have attached it on the forum instead:

  • Resolution set to No Bug
  • Status changed from new to closed

In fact 3.3.0 is OK, you don't get the official version of Inet.au3 which contain special scanning for the failing one.
I don't know if it is a real improvement to change something working.

PS no idea why you get a potential spam perhaps Valik can answer

The reason for Asikmet to qualify the tried source as spam is because it contains many external URLs which usuallly means it is SPAM.

You've closed this bug but the "whatismyip.com" lookup will always fail for me too.
