I'm not sure anyone is going to 'write' the script for you. How else
are you going to learn to do it? <g> But, I'd look at ifconfig ppp0 and
grab the IP from there. Another could be to find it in syslog where
pppd puts it's messages. Mine looks something like
Jun 21 15:56:58 localhost pppd: local IP address 126.96.36.199
Jun 21 15:56:58 localhost pppd: remote IP address 188.8.131.52
<rest of output>
uummm.... maybe you can find it in /proc somewhere too but I haven't reached that level success just yet.. Maybe someone else can clue us in..
