import os,urllib2,re


def getIpAddr():
    """
    Function for parsing external ip adress by pinging dyndns.com
    """
    External_IP=urllib2.urlopen('http://checkip.dyndns.com/').read()
    m = re.search(r"(([0-9]+\.){3}[0-9]+)", External_IP)
    my_IP= m.group(1)
    return my_IP




print('Current Ip from DynDns :  %s ') % getIpAddr()



this gets you your ip address

hope it helps.
