    I'm writing an application that passes command-line strings to another executable in Windows. Is there a way to either programatically or at the command line to determine the outside IP Address that the router is receiving from the ISP?

    I was thinking there would be some sort of command you could send to the router to get this information.

    at the dos prompt type ipconfig /all. That would give you information about your network settings including your WAN IP address

    Well, I thought of that and it wasn't quite giving me what I needed.

    Ok, I normally have a static IP on this comp, and it didn't give me any info on the WAN IP. So, I switched to DHCP and it still doesn't give me any WAN IP information. The closest thing I get is the Default Gateway, which is of course the router.

    What should I be looking for?
