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:
# Quick script to grab latest IP address
print=$(echo IP address is $ip at $date)
echo $print >> /OUTPUT-LOCATION/ip_log.txt
You can download direct script file from here and can call it as required.
