How do I get the gateway IP from a DHCP client machine?
 
Hi every1, I got the following problem:

I made a small linux box which needs to be placed somewhere around the world, connected to the internet via DHCP (that is, eth0 interface has dhcp turned on).
I then need to "SSH" the box.
How do I get the machine to "know" the public address bound to it?

I know, netstat gives the statistic about IPs, but only about the LAN IP, somewhat like 192.168.1.* , instead I need the gateway IP or anyway, the IP I must SSH from my server machine.
:scratch:
Is there a command to get it? Or what?
Thx,
Paolo

how about using a service such as dyndns.org or no-ip.com
