Howto: Identify your public IP from command line

Posted on Updated on

You can view your public IP from terminal that should be more helpful to work with script. This should free us from using GUI browsers to find Public address.

Using wget

wget -q -O - checkip.dyndns.org|sed -e 's/.*Current IP Address: //' -e 's/<.*$//'

Using curl

curl -s checkip.dyndns.org|sed -e 's/.*Current IP Address: //' -e 's/<.*$//'
curl -s http://whatismyip.org/

Using Lynx

lynx -dump checkip.dyndns.org
lynx -dump www.whatismyip.com | grep 'Your IP'
