It would be really great to have Lansweeper include the public IP Address of an assets Internet connection for assets that are scanned out side of the local network. Have LSPush run as a service (something other than an obvious scheduled task that can be canceled by the user) and send the asset info to the lansweeper server over the Internet when the user logs on.

This would give us the ability to locate stolen computers.

Did this feature ever get attention? I agree that it would be a great addition.

I've double check that this feature is still on the wishlist. Features on the customer wish list get development prioritization based on a combination of customer demand and difficulty to implement. Since this is a feature which is rarely requested and would require a significant amount of development, I can't unfortunately not give an estimated release date.

The best workaround currently is to find a third party tool which has some sort of location tracking function and deploy it on all your assets using the deployment module.

Bummer! Good to know the status though. Thanks for explaining. Maybe this will be my next pet project.

I don't suppose LS is pluggable? Is there is a way to hook into the reception of an incoming lspush communication? That would be the perfect time to check for the sender's (external) IP. Or am I dreaming?

We had a laptop stolen last night. The implementation of the public ip address would help our campus police department to track down the device. It would also help us identify networks we actually utilize by showing ip info that's not from a dhcp router.
