    You can also use the following command to find out IP address.

    # curl ipconfig.in/ip

    How about a simple ping or nslookup?

      @Mike

      Here, we explained how you can get your own public IP address, say on a laptop, from the terminal. Sometimes a ping doesn’t show your public IP address, and nslookup is not appropriate for this, unless you are finding the IP address associated to a domain name.

    curl -L0 http://checkip.org 2>/dev/null | grep ‘IP Address’ | awk -F ‘>’ ‘{ print $3 }’ | awk -F ‘<' '{ print $1 }'

    curl http://wooledge.org/myip.cgi

    These 2 works good for me …
    And thanks for excellent articles…
