Just now realized that I have over few thousand files in “Latest IP” directory. This is result of poor workaround I created sometimes back to keep track of IP address.
To fix it, I wrote a quick shell script and good enough - it works! :)
Prime purpose of this script is to write latest IP address along with date/time stamp. Thus, one can simply call this script from cron job to keep track of IP address usage.
Here’s few line code of the script:
#!/bin/bash # Quick script to grab latest IP address ip=$(curl http://www.dnsmadeeasy.com/myip.jsp) date=$(date) print=$(echo IP address is $ip at $date) echo $print » /OUTPUT-LOCATION/ip_log.txt
