• Getting the BBS IP address

    From Codefenix@VERT/CONCHAOS to All on Friday, September 08, 2023 07:57:57
    If I want to know the IP address of my own BBS, is this the simplest/best way to go about obtaining it?

    resolve_ip(system.inet_addr)

    Just making sure I'm not overlooking something simpler.

    server.interface_ip_address

    Or (if you have multiple IP addresses), server.interface_ip_addr_list

    server.interface_ip_address

    Isn't that deprecated?

    Or (if you have multiple IP addresses), server.interface_ip_addr_list

    I just have one, so I assume I would do: server.interface_ip_addr_list[0]

    When I try that though, it returns 0.0.0.

    server.interface_ip_address

    Isn't that deprecated?

    It still works and I have no plans to remove it.

    Or (if you have multiple IP addresses), server.interface_ip_addr_list

    I just have one, so I assume I would do: server.interface_ip_addr_list[0]

    When I try that though, it returns 0.0.0.

    And that would be correct if your BBS is only listening on IPv4 "any". I would expect the IPv6 "any" interface address (::) to be listed in that array too, but default.

    A better idea is probably is to use client.socket.local_ip_address to get the currently connected/used server IP address.

    Same outcome as before, unfortunately. Getting 0.0.0.0

    Is there a client connected? It's certainly not 0.0.0.0 for me:
    ;eval
    Parameter(s): client.socket.local_ip_address
    Result (string): 71.95.196.36

    Yes, mine. :) I'm running a script containing the client.socket.local_ip_address while logged into the BBS.

    ;eval
    Parameter(s): client.socket.local_ip_address
    Result (string): 71.95.196.36

    Interesting. I get a different result when I call client.socket.local_ip_address that way as opposed to calling it within a script.

    ;EVAL
    Parameter(s): client.socket.local_ip_address
    Result (string): 192.168.1.9

    Also, it's returning the behind-the-router IP for me, rather than the outward-facing IP, which it seems like it's supposed to do given your output.

    Yes, mine. :) I'm running a script containing the client.socket.local_ip_address while logged into the BBS.

    Running a script how? What's in the script?

    I created exec/test.js containing a single line:
    print(client.socket.local_ip_address);

    And then when I run that script from the BBS, I get the IP address I expect: ;exec ?test.js
    71.95.196.36

    ;eval
    Parameter(s): client.socket.local_ip_address
    Result (string): 71.95.196.36

    Interesting. I get a different result when I call client.socket.local_ip_address that way as opposed to calling it within a script.

    I do not.

    ;EVAL
    Parameter(s): client.socket.local_ip_address
    Result (string): 192.168.1.9

    Also, it's returning the behind-the-router IP for me, rather than the outward-facing IP, which it seems like it's supposed to do given your output.

    My servers aren't behind NAT, so that's expected. I guess if you want to find the *public* IP address associated with your hostname and your server is behind a NAT, then I guess the method you originally provided is (only?) way.

    IP Only
    http://ipv4.bbs.land/
    http://ipv6.bbs.land/

    Split on comma, second part is IP
    http://ip4.me/api/
    http://ip6.me/api/

    The ip(4|6) I found while looking for such a service... the bbs.land ones are mine... Mostly in preparation for setting up some of the domains I have for BBS related dyndns support.
