Re: Get the external IP address from a Linux box

Thank you most kindly, Mike!  Is there anything from this, that can help the original Poster?  Sign onto yourself, from a VPN or some such?  

(Back in the "good old days" where being a "hacker" was Respectable, people would see if they could reconnect to their own Unix/Linux System, through as many Countries as possible.  With UUCP [Anyone else remember THAT?], you could get, quite a "Telephone Circle" going.  Oh well!!!)

that IP Address.  Anybody?

It gets it from your login program or pam writing to /var/run/utmp
