Find my IP Address?

Post by Newbie4 » Thu May 02, 2013 3:08 am

Is there a way to find my IP address?

The dictionary has some commands but they require an open socket. I just want to find out what my computer's IP address is without starting a server up and connecting to it

You use the hostName along with the hostNameToAddress functioon.

Code: Select all

on mouseUp
   answer the hostNameToAddress of the hostName
end mouseUp

Thank you. I would never have figured that out on my own in a million years.

The Dictionary does leave a lot to be desired.

Hi,

The hostname is nice, but if you want to find the global IP address, the easiest way is to use a web service:

Code: Select all

put URL "http://qery.us/iptest.php"
Best,

That doesn't seem to work for me. I just get http://qery.us/iptest.php as if its a normal put and not put URL.

Hi,

Just to be clear, qery.us works with any version of LiveCode, open-source or not.

Kind regards,

To better define "a bunch of stuff..." heh, you basically get the page source.

This works:

put URL "https://ip.seeip.org" into MyPubblicIP

I wonder for how long...

I realize the OP was looking for an answer that wasn't dependent on a server, but since the nature of the task almost requires an external server and relying on other people's servers may be dodgy, if you have a server with LC Server installed you can use this:

Code: Select all

<?lc put put $_SERVER["REMOTE_ADDR"] ?>
The bigger question here is: why is the address needed?
