    Is there a way I can find out my IP address on my new SuSE 9.2 system? :confused:

    Log in to a shell, and run

    It shows you all your network cards and their current IP adresses.

    script for it

    When run by itself, whoami looks like this:
    $ whoami

    That should be sufficient to give you the clue on how to implement the test you seek:
    if [ $(whoami) = "sbovisjb1" ]
    execute the code, we're the right user
    echo "You must be user 'joe' to run this script."
    exit 0

    You can modify this to match the user or set of users you want to allow, or you can negate the logic to screen out bad userIDs immediately, like this:
    if [ $(whoami) = "root" ]
    echo "You cannot run this script as root."
    exit 1

    Finding your IP address

    Another good site for finding info on your IP address is:
    IP Notes - Find out your IP address
    (copied from my bookmarks)
    It also sticks your location on a Google Map - quite funky.

    That's a nice feature - although it's showing my ISP's location and not mine. But still interesting. :)

    Hey nowadays, just go on google and write "What is my ip address" in the
    search engine. It'll give you readyment answer. Other wise ip2location. com use this one..

    Any external website that has the follow code on a page with server side includes will echo your internet address (not your local address). If you run multiple servers it can be useful to have this on them so you can reference it. I have a server in a data center with fixed IP and a server at home with dynamic IP. The home server will check it's address from the external server and rewrite it's DNS if the address changes. Kind of what dyndns will do for your domain name but I don't have to pay someone else for it.

    <!--#echo var="REMOTE_ADDR" -->

    Suggestions noted above are a good way to find your IP. But it depends on what you are doing and how your network is configured. For example you may need to NAT out to the internet. So this is something to keep in mind.

    there are two types of ip address.that is system ip address and internet ip you dind't mention about which one.if you need system ip address means you can just follow the instructions below.
    start-->run-->Type cmd-->Type ipconfig.
    you will get the system ip address.or else if you need internet ip address means you can visit the site here you can get the ip address just by visiting the site.i think this information is useful for you to get ip address.
