Unix/Linux : How to get own IP address ?



Tags : unix linux ifconfig hostname ip-address

I know I know... this should be a fairly simple task.. but my memory is that good anymore.

Just a note to myself. This is how to get own IP address on Unix/Linux

First with :

ifconfig

eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 04:01:12:F0:61:01

inet addr:162.243.5.230 Bcast:162.243.5.255 Mask:255.255.255.0 <------- HERE !

inet6 addr: fe80::601:12ff:fef0:6101/64 Scope:Link

UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1

RX packets:12844262 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0

TX packets:1945153 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000

RX bytes:1256605981 (1.1 GiB) TX bytes:5305072100 (4.9 GiB)

or

hostname -I (capital i)

162.243.5.230 10.128.221.78 <----------------------first from left is the IP address
