IPAddressSentinel1.2.6

26 April 2016

Display your IP address in the menu bar.

Overview

IPAddressSentinel displays and copies your current machine's IP addresses and name. (Only the first IP address found is displayed to save space.)

Since the app registers itself to receive notifications of changes in machine IP address, it is always current, and you can use it to know when you Mac is connected to the Internet by just looking at your menu bar. If it is not connected then the title will be empty: "-.-.-.-".

Features:
  • Include machine name in menu bar
  • Include wireless network name in menu bar
  • Show the external Ip address in the menu
  • Show the domain name of the address
  • List all addresses on your Mac in the menu
  • Email you when the machine address changes
  • Email you when the external address changes
  • Graphically indicate when the address changes in the menu bar
  • Optionally only show the app icon in menu bar, to save space.
  • The menu is updated whenever you open it.
  • Use the logging mechanism for detailed tracking of activity.
  • Changes in IP address can be indicated by showing a red app icon in the menu bar.

AVOID. This developer is useless, as well as their website. I have their "Limit Point Software Utilities Bundle" (even their link on this page is useless) where you get all of their apps with updates forever. Yeah, good luck. Anyone else having problems? Leave a comment, and maybe I'll start legal action to get them to honor their comments.

If you decide you like this app, spend the extra few bucks and buy the utilities bundle offered by the developer. You get this app plus a ton of others for 5 more dollars. Support and updates are the same. So if price is keeping you from purchasing, consider the utilities bundle.

Not working anymore, because whatismyip.com have changed their policy. See here: http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp … and here: http://www.whatismyip.com/membership-options/ … free users will now be restricted to 5 IP lookups per 24 hours, which renders the app useless. For the time being users could hack the IPSentinelStatus code to use checkip at dyndns instead, but they don't give you the DNS name, and their html code isn't compatible with the way IP info is displayed in the IPSentinelStatus menu. Definitely needs an update.

I like the idea of this app but it's not working properly on my MacBook Pro running 10.6.4. Even though I've set the preferences to show the external ip in the menu, it is showing the local ip. Also, it intermittently doesn't show anything at all. I looked on the devs website for a support page and couldn't find anything. If these issues get worked out I would consider buying it.

This is a developer comment in reply to some of the other user feedback: I just took a quick look at BwanaDik, looks good. Does very similar basic operation, but these are different applications. Also, the preferences have been moved into the app itself, rather than requiring a separate preference pane. This is something I will be incorporating into all my menu bar applications over time, in the near future. IPSentinelStatus, although not free, is part of a bundle, my "Utilities Bundle." When you register any utility in the bundle, including IPSentinelStatus, you get all of them! I think that's quite an unusual deal and package of Mac Apps for such a low price, and upgrades to everything is always free. So give them a try! This is the home page for the Utility Bundle: http://www.limit-point.com/Utilities.html Finally, if anyone finds missing features or problems, in any of my applications, that they would like incorporated or fixed, just let me know. I always try to accommodate your suggestions, in any product I write. This is how the a product evolves. I am very accessible via email. Check out the website at: http://www.limit-point.com/Contact.html. I check email much more frequently than the reviews because of time constraints. Please accept my apology for that, and I look forward to hearing from you in email! Ciao

Bwanadik is free, has more features, and looks better; and, to top it all, hasn't been updated in ages and is *still* better!

limit-point makes good software and I was hoping this would be as I thought but like the response below me, it merely picks up my internal ip and does not show external at all. If your looking for a program to display your external ip address in the menubar with automatic refresh and just a click to refresh it yourself I would check out the Free IPMenulet. It won't perform tasks such as emailing you when your external changes but it will show your external, and update itself before you even have the chance to refresh it most of the time. Never had a glitch w/ IPMenulet. I also never had a glitch w/ IPSentinel... it just wouldn't pick up my external over my network. Of course it could be an error on my part but this is my experience. Try both out, see which suits you best and go from there. limit-point is constantly updating which is nice, IPMenulet not as much but then again it doesn't need an update as it is quite a simple little bugger that does the trick.

What about the external IP address? Now I only see the local address I have...
