Find and monitor your external IP

TrueIP is a small free tool which can discover your external IP address, display it in various ways and alert you when it changes.

On launch the program adds an icon to your system tray. Hovering your mouse cursor over this displays a tooltip with your current external IP.

You can also display the IP by double-clicking the icon, or right-clicking it and selecting "Quick Information".

Right-clicking the icon and selecting "Full Information" displays your external IP, local IP, MAC address, host name and more.

An Options dialog enables launching the program at startup, using a different source to retrieve your address (the default is, how often to check the address (every 10 minutes by default), and more.

If it's important to know when your address changes, you can have it displayed in a tray notification, sent in an email, saved to an FTP server, or just logged to a file for analysis later.


There's no need to install software to find your external IP software-- just entering IP at Google or visiting a site like will reveal all. But the program's logging and notification tools are handy, and although TrueIP requires installation it takes minimal resources and won't get in your way.

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
