Find your IP Address

Many times, it is useful to identify our different network interfaces and figure out what are their IP Addresses.

Local IP Address

You can figure out your Local IP Address with the following command:

$ ip addr

This output represents the different existent interfaces which you can use to visualize the resultant IP Addresses:

1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: wlp114s0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc mq state UP group default qlen 4096
    link/ether 9c:b6:d0:3e:4b:02 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet brd scope global dynamic noprefixroute wlp114s0
       valid_lft 83691sec preferred_lft 83691sec
    inet6 2a01:c23:6491:1101:8b69:e75e:68fd:9cdc/64 scope global dynamic noprefixroute 
       valid_lft 297sec preferred_lft 117sec
    inet6 fe80::3b77:46e0:a344:4ebc/64 scope link noprefixroute 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever

Another alternative would be to use the hostname command:

$ hostname -i

And here the output:
