  • "Couldn't get IP address"
  •  

    I know this has been asked many times before, but please hear me out.
    I have checked other topics and some of them said 'This happens when you can't reach whatismyip.com'
    Actually, my country blocks the site, so any workarounds?
    ANY type of help would be appreciated.
    However, if the solution is inconceivable, I will quit AoS.

    Are you not able to access this page at all?

    http://www.whatismyip.com/automation/n09230945.asp

    Googling showed me that Trend Micro (possibly others) detect this as a security threat. Which I fail to see how, it's not as if an external IP is private information or anything.

    Try disabling your anti-virus and try again.

    If that doesn't work, I guess you could hypothetically re-route whatismyip.com (maybe via the hosts file?) to another service that returns a simple, plain-text IP response.
