Hi. I have a dirt simple batch file that takes my IPConfig data and sends it to my home email (I connect remotely and the office is ...fond... of moving the PC around... So I need to have it kinda call home every night (When I come online)
While that's all fine... I would love to get an email that JUST has my IP (I could actually TEXT that...)
Is there a windows command or ??? that just returns the IP address?

Even somehow parsing to pull the line
IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 99.99.99.99(Preferred)
would be enough

Why not use your computer name instead of IP, then IP change won't matter. As long as your DNS in the office is setup properly.
Or set a static IP on the computer so it does not change? Seems a lot of extra work when there are simpler solutions.
If this is your own system in the office, you can also move it to a place where it won't need to get moved. We have setup lots of systems for remote access that just sit in a cube without even a monitor or mouse/keyboard attached, just a network cable.
