Overview

This is a simple Python script to check which external IP address you have. First we are importing the urllib and re modules.

Check your IP Address

The URL that we will use to check the IP for is: http://checkip.dyndns.org

import urllib
import re

print "we will try to open this url, in order to get IP Address"

url = "http://checkip.dyndns.org"

print url

request = urllib.urlopen(url).read()

theIP = re.findall(r"d{1,3}.d{1,3}.d{1,3}.d{1,3}", request)

print "your IP Address is: ",  theIP

Happy scripting
