The other day I had to ssh into a RedHat Linux server to help a friend. My friend wanted to find the public IP address using Linux command line. This is simpler than what I imaged.
After having one of my favorite Latin America coffee from Peru I was able to find the answer. Use these simple commands after opening your Terminal/Command line on Linux:
- Using the dig command type:
dig +short myip.opendns.com @resolver1.opendns.com
- or you can use this one:
dig TXT +short o-o.myaddr.l.google.com @ns1.google.com
You can now see your public IP address on your Linux terminal.
