checkip.pl problem

BillT asked 2 years ago

Hi to all
For some dayw now my linux box cannot update its ip. I have set the update interval to 20 mins. the script i use to update is called checkip.pl ( its a perl script). it used to work so far. the message i get is:

Error GETing [url]http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp:[/url] Can't connect to automation.whatismyip.com:80 (Bad hostname 'automation.whatismyip.com') at checkip.pl line 16

At line 16 of the script is the following line:
$mech->get('http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp');

is something changed to the service you provide?
Thank you for your time...

Thanks for your question BillT.

I know we update our server. As I recall, there is a new URL for the automation script. I'll try to find it an post it here for you. Otherwise wimiadmin knows what it is.
