How can i learn my private ip address?

I have tried many things on console to learn my private ip address however I could not succeed. What should I input in to console to learn it? I will use it for node.js.


As mentioned you can use ifconfig and the see the IP bound to eth0. However, you can also see your IP just by logging into you DO account area. It’s listed right there.

I didn’t know that the ip which seems after logging into DO is my private ip address. I have learned it’s my private ip after tried to connect. Also ifconfig works, as well. Thank you for your answers :)


look at inet addr for eth0
