Script to capture dynamic IP address


Hello,

I need a script to capture my dynamically generated IP address (cable connection), and then have this info emailed to a remote address.

I found a few, but they are all for ppp connections.

Thanks,
scon

How about something like this?

Code:
ifconfig eth0 | awk  '/inet addr/ { print $2 } ' | mail dude@address.com

Thanks crabboy, that code looks spot on. Would it now be possible to have this address checked and e-mailed on a daily basis and/or at certain times.

Sorry if I am pushing my luck.
