It seems as though every time I try to get my public IP address from a website I’m shown a slew of ads, messy formats and otherwise unattractive pages. I was looking for a VERY simple way get my public IP address added into a script I was creating and got frustrated with the options available.
I decided to create a very simplistic web page that cleanly displays IP addresses and also supports a back-end for displaying public addresses to the command line as needed. I also worked in a small proxy detector to test if the client is coming from a proxy and display what information it could gather from the client about the proxy.
I will be adding more one line commands to the page as I stumble across them, trying to keep the format of the commands as simple as possible.
