the easiest (for the user) way
Authored by: shemp9999 on Jul 10, '01 10:04:46PM

based on this thread, i've written 2 perl scripts (and a crontab) that get/mail the current ip address.

i have earthlink DSL (dynamic) and an asante firewall box, so the wget method is appropriate for me.

the mail script is nice, it mails me at work when my ip changes (so i an access any machine i've configured access for on the router).

i posted them on the forum a while ago, but they seem not to have shown up (??!!??)...anyhoo;
