Hi,
I have to support the home computers of some friends. All of them are
newly converted :) to SuSE 9.2. All of them use DSL or cable Internet
access. The problem is that from time to time their ISPs change the
IPs of the modem, which prevents me to remotely administer the
machines without asking some of the people there to check what is
their current external IP by checking http://www.whatismyip.com/ or
the config of the modem.

Is there a script/package which can check the external IP on regular
basis and send the changes to an email?

Cheers
Sunny
