Usage: externalip [METHOD]


Get external IP address that is visible by servers that you connect to over Internet.

Note: this is not necessarily the same IP as the one that is used by your computer's network interface (for that use internalip).

METHOD can be: dns (default), http, https, ftp, telnet.

The http and https methods are using the service that showed the best performance in all my tests (from Warsaw, Poland).

Use the externalip-benchmark script to find the best server for your location.
