Check Your IP From Behind A Router


Recommended Posts

Anyone have any idea how to get your external IP address from a command line when your behind a router? I saw on some linux forums how to get around to doing that but... no luck with XP? Any clues or .exe's you can save/run to do this? Thanks...

btw lol has to be in a command line....

I don’t have satellite but friends do and when I send them to that site for there IP it will give a incorrect IP. So I just walk them through the steps of logging into there router to find there ip.

Great!

telnet www.whatismyip.com 80

GET /automation/n09230945.asp HTTP/1.1

Host:whatismyip.com

works for me. No digging in html.

Maybe you should have a look at your firewall?

figured out what the problem is but no solution lol..

i "can" telnet into it and connect but what i type doesnt show up and when i send the GET command it goes through but nothing shows up after i hit enter.

if i telnet to the site and hit enter it comes up with bad command error, but if i telnet into the server and enter the GET command the cursor goes to the next line so the command went through. if i hit enter after that it comes up bad command error...
