Getting my IP address?

I need to use a web service that has blocked public IP addresses. It gives access to only those that are listed on their access list.

I want to test my application in localhost first so I need to put my IP address in that access list and test it in my local server but I don't know my public static IP address.

How can I find it out?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

do you know that your ip address is static? Use e.g. to see your current ip. (though if you are testing in locally you might rather want your network ip. check "ipconfig" (win) or "ifconfig" (linux) ) – example May 13 '12 at 8:13
Do you want to make your software discover the public IP address, or you want to find it manually? – jweyrich May 13 '12 at 8:16
-1, just searching for "my public IP" on Google will show you the IP address directly. No research effort. – Daniel Andersson May 13 '12 at 10:39
