re: - Coolest way to get your IP address VIEW POST


Two things:

  1. is more functional but less cool;
  2. doesn't support querying IPv6 or IPv4 explicitly -- if you have IPv6, it will return the IPv6 address and not the IPv4 address, which sometimes is not what you want. Try this out: curl; curl; curl

Can't you use curl -4 or curl -6 to query v4 or v6?


ifconfig is a convenient one. We will add the curl capability soon ✌️


I use this too! I even have an alias which I use all of the time.

alias whatsmyip='curl'
