For your IP address, log into whatismyip.com

Note that depending on your ISP (cable, DSL etc) and whether you turn your modem on and off, your IP address may possibly change each time you log on to the internet.

maybe i get something wrong, but i think the easiest way is open a console and type

Code:
ifconfig [INTERFACE]

Our machines can very easily have three IP addresses

1) 127.0.0.1 (ifconfig lo) AKA localhost
2) the LAN address
3) the Internet Address

The problem is: Us who are behind routers get the LAN address with the ifconfig utility. I don't even think the machine knows the Internet IP address in these cases.

bruce, your answer is absolutely correct. thinking before posting does help. i do know the difference between internal and external adresses, as i'm also behind a router at home. and sure, ifconfig gives only the internal for these setups.

[1]
hardinfo

Program's box:
..Network -->
....Interfaces

[2]If the computer is under hardware protection, then the user activates the computer's network adapter and opens the defender's programmatic control panel by web-browser or by another special program where, perhaps, was written the line with the needful external IP address.

Try this.
Code:
#!/bin/sh
wget -4 -t 2 -T 20 --waitretry=20 --spider --level=1  -S echoip.com 2>&1 |grep OK > /tmp/echoip
if [ ! -s /tmp/echoip ];then
Xdialog --title "" --timeout 6 --msgbox \
"\n   echoip.com is unreachable
Check that you have a connection to the internet   \n" 0 0
exit 0
else
EXTIP=`curl echoip.com/ 2> /dev/null`
PCIP=`ifconfig | grep 'inet addr:'| grep -v '127.0.0.1' | cut -d: -f2 | awk '{ print $1}'`
export IP='

gtkdialog --program=IP

exit 0
fi

I am not sure why this thread was revived, but it should be mentioned as well that Puppy has ipinfo... a script that can be simply called at the command line:

Code:
ipinfo


As such, it also brings up a gui (using gtkdialog3) which displays one's External IP address.

In fact, ipinfo was written by vovchik before this thread began and probably could have been mentioned back then...

Just sayin...
