    Hey guys,
    I know this is a reach, but I am looking for an app that will collect the WAN side ID address of my router and then email it to me (or at least log it in a txt file) The reason is, my ISP provides dynamic address, however I want to be able to reach my home server from work (access to my files, music, pics, etc) or give my friends access to files while I am not here.

    Is there such an app out there? Could this be scripted in Apple Script?

    Thanks,
    Jason

    I use an application called IPMenu that tracks your IP and will e-mail you if it changes, which is probably more what you want than a constant reminder of identical IP addresses.

    Edit: screen grab

    I use DynDNS, and it couldn't be easier. And it's free (as I assume EveryDNS must be). DynDNS' site includes some scripts which will update its site with your latest IP address.
