I am running an Automator script to launch SFTP on my Mac when double-clicked. Here’s the script:
do shell script "sudo -s launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ftp.plist" with administrator privileges tell app "Finder" to display alert "SFTP Opened and your IP address is"
The alert displayed is:
SFTP Opened and your IP address is
As you can see, the alert message is incomplete because I don’t know how to retrieve the IP address of my system to pass through as a variable in the second line of my code. Any workaround? Please don’t suggest any external tools. And please don’t suggest using Automator’s System variable “IP address” with a separate “Ask for Confirmation” box because I want the IP to be displayed as a part of my existing message in the alert that I am already showing.
