How to find outgoing IP in Linux ?



Here is a small snippet to find outgoing IP of your Linux box.


1. To find the outgoing internal IP only
     
 
# ip route get 8.8.8.8 | head -1 | gawk '{ print $7 }'


2. To find the outgoing internal IP along with interface.

 
# ip route get 8.8.8.8 | head -1 | gawk '{ print $5,$7 }'


3. In-case if your system is connected to Internet, to find the outgoing external IP
 
# curl ifconfig.me


Note:  In case if your system having public IP assigned then there is no difference between outgoing internal IP and external IP (both are same).
