Test message and finding IP Address

I have a program that I wrote that emails the IP address of the computer
when it runs. How I use it is that on my home computer, it's in the Run
key of the registry, so that when I restart the computer, the program
runs and emails my work to tell me its IP address. That way I'll always
be able to know the IP address of my home computer, since it changes
The program utilizes 4nt, a shareware program by JPSoft (a command line
enhancement over standard the normal command line program, cmd.exe), and
WinBatch, also shareware (pretty cheap as an interpreter, but to buy the
compiler it's very expensive).
I'm sure it could be converted to C# or VB or VB Script (or whatever),
but what I have works fine for me, so I didn't put any more effort into
it. If you're interested, I can send a zip of what I did.

Subject: Test message and finding IP Address
I am not sure how this is going to work, or how I get a reply, but here
I have not used VNC yet, although I have used remote admin software (PC
Anywhere _under DOS_ and RADMIN.
I will mostly be workign modem-to-modem for now. No Internet.
Question. If I connect to a remote computer where they are the server
and I the Viewer, can I in any way find out what IP address has been
assigned to their PC serever setup, without them having to ring or email
me with the result?
I am pretty sure that the PC will assigna constant IP Address when I use
the Dial Up Server. So I _hope_ I can establish this and make it part of
my standard list.
For later reference, I imagine that actually using the Internet either
removes this problem, or has a different solution.
Any help appreciated. _______________________________________________
