Unix Tip #4375- March 4, 2014

ANOTHER GET YOUR IP ADDRESS


A previous tip listed how
to get the IP address for your
system using the output from
ifconfig. However the output
from ifconfig is different
across systems.

For Solaris use:

ifconfig -a | grep "inet" | grep -v "127.0.0.1" | awk '{print $2;}'

For HP-UX use:

ifconfig foo | grep "inet" | awk '{print $2;}'

Where foo is the interface, generally lan0, lan1 etc.
