Get Your Public External IP From Command Line


Ya this is needed in many such occasion -  like Proxy white-listing / Getting access through 3rd party Firewall / troubleshooting anything on web server specific to your request etc.

On linux Command prompt I would do somethign like this :

[root@DebaTestBox ~]# wget -O - -q icanhazip.com 
14.16.135.X
[root@DebaTestBox ~]# curl ifconfig.me/ip
14.16.135.X
[root@DebaTestBox ~]#





Eventhough there are many such sites(most of them are flooded with ads!!)  - who gives your Outgoing NAT public IP info - I know some lighter once -

http://ipcheck.rehbein.net/
http://checkrealip.com/
http://dynamic.zoneedit.com/checkip.html
http://www.raffar.com/checkip/
http://www.thisip.org/
http://testip.edpsciences.org/
http://mwburden.com/cgi-bin/getipaddr
http://www.tanziars.com/
http://www.naumann-net.org/
http://www.antifart.com/stuff/checkip/
http://checkip.eurodyndns.org/

Woindows users can simply type any of these above URL in the browser -  not sure - if we can use any cmd like you can do in *NIX console.

PS: Please add to the list if you know more secured one's

Thanks/-
