    Try 'ip addr' and 'ip route'.

    You have to replace the IP address used as example with the actual IP which you can get with
    ip addr

    Maybe @JohnLinuxing is installing a new system, so it is not yet running. Then user can not yet use ip addr to see what IP address is assigned.
    The Guide assumes server has static IP address, and person installing knows what it is. Ask your network administrator what IP configuration to use, refer to Internet Service provider documentation or if hosted virtual or dedicated server ask your service provider.
