Answer

This will fetch your remote IP address

import urllib
ip = urllib.urlopen('http://automation.whatismyip.com/n09230945.asp').read()

If you don't want to rely on someone else, then just upload something like this PHP script:

<?php echo $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']; ?>

and change the URL in the Python or if you prefer ASP:

<%
Dim UserIPAddress
UserIPAddress = Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR")
%>

Note: I don't know ASP, but I figured it might be useful to have here so I googled.
