    This is the response body from baremetal.com, which is used in the get public ip class

    The response code is a 403 – the plugin doesn’t check for the response code, but it gets worse

    trying to get the ip from hostnametoip.com creates a wp_error (connection timed out) so the plugin blows up

    I commented out references to the first 2, and it worked.
    The third service is successful, but it seems like a bad idea to rely on such things.

    Removed baremetal.com — only one IP server remains.

    Added a filter to set remote IP programmatically in 1.1.3, so these services don’t need to be relied upon.

    Usage: add_filter( 'ubp_remote_ip', function(){ return '12.34.56.789'; } );
