Is there a plugin that can simply display internet IP?

I was wondering the other day what my home IP was since my ISP changed it. I couldn’t access my IP cameras because of it. I was able to log into Vera though from the web interface. Sadly there was nothing that reports the internet IP though. So I was wondering, is there a plugin that simply states the current IP in the devices screen or similar? :slight_smile:

note: I a running UI5 (since there were so many trouble stories about upgrading and losing content, i never upgraded)

You mean your machine IP on the Local LAN, or the address on the external Internet, the other side of your router?

I’m going to assume your on UI7?

login to vera, go to settings, Net & WIFI, click trouble network button at the top and it will give you all the info you need.

About Halfway down the page it will say

External IP:

Open up a web browser and enter the below URL. (Replace IPADDRESS with your Vera’s IP address) Look for the External IP line.

http://IPADDRESS/cgi-bin/cmh/NetworkTroubleshoot.sh

BOFH that wouldn’t work if he was way from his house like he was. If he was home he could just google “whats my IP”.

I think the point was that he was away from home and he is port forwarding to his cameras without a Dynamic DNS (which is his main problem) and his WAN IP got changed. He could get into VERA via the home.getvera.com but not to all his other local devices that he had port forwarded do to him not knowing what his new WAN or External IP was.

Yes, my apologies. I am using UI5 (1.5.622) still (I should have mentioned that). I was able to find it by going to Setup–> Net & Wifi --> Troubleshoot Network, quite similar to as suggested above by integlikewhoa. Now I just have to remember that in the future since my IP almost never does that (it’s been a few years since it last changed I believe). Thanks.

Sorry, I missed the remote part. I’m lucky enough to run a *nix box as my server/gateway so I have a script that checks my external IP every 15 minutes. If my ISP decided to change it (which they do every now and then) it’ll both email me the new IP as well as update my external DNS service so my domain also gets updated.

I wonder if the NetworkTroubleshoot.sh script could be run on Vera itself via eg a cron job and piped to eg grep and awk to extract any new IP address. Not sure if there is an easy way to email that other than to have the script talk to an external SMTP server to send that email.

Now that would be cool!

Update: That triggered a search on google. I am now running IP Monitor as a service


Will see if this works out :slight_smile:

My Dynamic DNS Plugin will provide this for you

Yes, but that is UI7 only sadly

I didn’t know this existed. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks or that!

If I didn’t hear so many horror stories from those who transitioned from IU5 to IU7, I would have done it :confused:

Too many users spoke of problems with losing scenes, devices and custom code…as well as the new interface being much slower. I am running the VeraLite.

Never touch a running system. And sure not to get the ip of your isp :slight_smile:

In UI5, I created a scene (ExternalIP) which runs the following code to get my IP address:
local status, ip = luup.inet.wget(“http://checkip.dyndns.org”,10)
luup.task(ip,2,“ExternalIp”, -1)
