Hello,
It would be possible but not very helpful.
The reason, is that in almost all cases (if not all) the SignagePlayer resides behind a NAT.
Thus, the IP is a local IP only and so you will not be able to ping it, or do anything else with the proxied IP.

Regards,

David.

Hi,
about NAT you're right, but will be helpfull to know public ip address. Then configuration about port to open will be done on firewall in the remote location.
Thanks

DARIO
