finding the servers IP adres...

We have a server (Win2000, IIS) but our ip-adres is dynamic... we want to create a perl-script that finds the cuurent ip and upload it to our homepage (on our provider)... So what is the command to find the ip of the server the script is running on? Is there a way?

Thanks in advance,


RE: finding the servers IP adres...

Could you use the loopback address? (

Email welcome if you're in a hurry or something -- but post in tek-tips as well please, and I will post my reply here as well.

RE: finding the servers IP adres...

You can use 'ipconfig' on the winOS to get your address....

@netStuff = `ipconfig`; # <= back ticks
foreach (@netStuff)
print "=> $_ \n";
