Why do you need this?
Sometimes you need to know your real external IP address.
Maybe you're playing the latest first-person shooter over the net on your PS2, XBox or GameCube. Maybe you need to access your PC from a remote location, or set up a VPN. Maybe you're setting up a webcam for video conferencing.
If your machine is connected to the internet through a hub or router, then chances are that your local IP address and your public IP address are different. DSL, Cable and Dial-up internet connections assign addresses dynamically with DHCP, giving your network a different IP address on each connection. So to use Network Address Translation (NAT) to properly direct external traffic to a local desktop PC, gaming console, or server, you'll need to know your external IP address.
