Hello to everyone,I need to get the public address from my router with LUA.
This is a PHP example:  $my_public_ip = $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
I searched around but I' ve not found examples.Someone can help me out?Thank's a lot.ByeClaudio

If you have a connected TCP socket (like PHP probably does), that's easy:

    local address, port = s:getsockname()   -- LuaSocket[1] or NixIO[2]

If you don't have a connected socket you can query interface information using NixIO's `getifaddrs()`[3] function. If you are on an OpenWRT Router you probably have NixIO installed already, but LUnix[4] also has a binding to that function. You may get multiple results though, and you'll have to decide which one is the real external interface.

Or you query an external server like Thijs suggested (which will also work if you have some form of masquerading/NAT between your router and the internet).
