AddOn to show apparent external IP address?

Hi, apologies if this is the wrong place, but the defunct IPCop used to show on the home screen the apparent external IP address, and I can’t see an option or an AddOn to do the same for IPFire.

Is there an AddOn to show apparent external IP address on the home screen?


The home screen does show Red WAN address AFAIK, plus Hostname and Gateway.
It additionally shows Green LAN info and any others defined.
On Red, are you using fixed IP/DHCP or PPPoE dialup? Should not matter which TBH.

Yes, it shows RED IP address, but my IPFire is behind the ADSL router, and so the IPFire’s RED IP Address is in the private IP Address ranges.

The Dynamic DNS page has the option “Guess the real public IP with help of an external server” (which, I guess, is what I’m looking for) but doesn’t display the IP address found :frowning:


have a look at this footer mod from me …

There is the public ip shown …

Is there a recent URL for this? The listed URL gives

Not Found

The requested URL was not found on this server.

Stefan Feddersen, who created that Footer Mod, has stepped back from IPFire related stuff a while back.

I suspect that the server is no longer in existence and that therefore there is no alternative url.


I can’t find the download for ipfire-footer-mod anywhere… does anyone have a working URL to a recent version?

ipfire-footer-mod_v1.0.6.tar.gz (14,7 KB)

This one ?
