       For  help  with  different  options: python ipcheck.py -h For supported

       Make  sure  you  can  write to the current directory for data files and
       that you always run from the same directory.  The first  time  you  run
       the  script,  you  will  be  asked  to run with the --makedat option in
       addition to any other options.  This will create the data files for the
       hostnames  and  options  your  specify on the command line.  You should
       only do  this  once.   Subsequent  runs  should  be  made  without  the
       --makedat option.

       For  help  with  different  options: python ipcheck.py -h For supported
       devices listing  : python ipcheck.py --devices For long  detailed  help
       text    : python ipcheck.py --help

       Example  1:  the  external  IP is on eth0 of the current machine python
       ipcheck.py -l -i eth0 username password hostnames

       Example 2: you are using the Linksys routing device  python  ipcheck.py
       -l -L linksyspassword username password hostnames

       Example  3: you want to use web based ip detection python ipcheck.py -l
       -r checkip.dyndns.org:8245 ...

       where ... is your dyndns username password  and  hostnames.   Hostnames
       should be comma delimited if there are more than one.
