One trick I use to get the IP address of an agent is to make a request for http://whatismyip.akamai.com/ and look at the screen capture. This will show the IP of the agent as seen on the internet. You could then use this for white-listing purposes.

eg: here's the test run from a Nexus browser in Dulles:
