IP Monitor

Current Version: 1.3.2

IP Monitor is a very small application that displays your current IP address or subnet mask in a floating window, and allows you to easily copy either of these items to your clipboard for use in applications or documents where it is necessary to make this information known to others. It's AppleScript-able, and very handy. Version 1.3.2 implements access to the Remote Access control panel as well as support for menu sharing under Mac OS X.

User Reviews

"A handy little 'essential' for all of us MIS guys who rely on remote access. The Apple-scriptability is marvelous and trouble-free."
—Anthony Vincent

"I wanted to update my web page with an "I am online @ IP xx.xx.xx.xx" [so] I tried IP Monitor. On my '040 Mac it causes system instability. I'm working on tracing down some sort of cure, but if you should hear of others having problems, please post it. It may be a glitch here, not in the software, but the AppleScript works fine and the system stays stable if I don't call IP Monitor."
—Steven M. Palm

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
