  • parses the output of ifconfig to show only the configured ip address (in this case from interface eth0). the regexp is quick'n'dirty im sure it can be done in a better way. --> this alias does not show your "internet ip" when you're in a nat-environment Show Sample Output


    0
    alias showip="ifconfig eth0 | grep 'inet addr:' | sed 's/.*addr\:\(.*\) Bcast\:.*/\1/'"

  • Sometimes it's useful to output just the ip address. Or some other information, changing the "ipv4.addresses" in command. The power of awk! Show all possible "greps" with nmcli connection show [yourInterfaceNameHere] Show Sample Output


    1
    showip() { nmcli connection show $1|grep ipv4.addresses|awk '{print $2}' ; }

  • From 'man netstat' "netstat -i | -I interface [-abdnt] [-f address_family] [-M core] [-N system] Show the state of all network interfaces or a single interface which have been auto-configured (interfaces statically configured into a system, but not located at boot time are not shown). An asterisk (``*'') after an interface name indicates that the interface is ``down''. If -a is also present, multicast addresses currently in use are shown for each Ethernet interface and for each IP interface address. Multicast addresses are shown on separate lines following the interface address with which they are associated. If -b is also present, show the number of bytes in and out. If -d is also present, show the number of dropped packets. If -t is also present, show the contents of watchdog timers."

  • To show ipv6 instead, use [[ -6 ]] instead of [[ -4 ]] ip -o -6 a s | awk -F'[ /]+' '$2!~/lo/{print $4}' To show only the IP of a specific interface, in case you get more than one result: ip -o -4 a s eth0 | awk -F'[ /]+' '$2!~/lo/{print $4}' ip -o -4 a s wlan0 | awk -F'[ /]+' '$2!~/lo/{print $4}' Show Sample Output


    2
    ip -o -4 a s | awk -F'[ /]+' '$2!~/lo/{print $4}'
