/sbin/ifconfig (if you are root, this should be in your $PATH).

Post /sbin in $PATH

As it happened in my case, /sbin was not in my PATH.
(I am a simple user on a network. Not an administrator.)
Hence, neither ifconfig, nor ip addr worked.

I had to locate the command ifconfig,
i.e.,
Code:
locate ifconfig
Edit the file $HOME/.bashrc, i.e.,
add the line export PATH=$PATH:/sbin to
file $HOME/.bashrc

Source the .bashrc, i.e. run the command

Code:
. $HOME/.bashrc
and then I could avail both the commands.

In any case, the following script, mentioned on page
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...?postid=815946

runs without problems, and without hassle.

Code:
/sbin/ifconfig eth0|grep inet|awk {'print $2'}|cut -d":" -f2
-Cheers!

The question being addressed was not one of rights as much as expedient access. On Linuxes that I use, '/sbin' is in the $PATH for root, but not mortal users. I made the point originally because newbies might not realize that 'ifconfig' as root will probably work, but as joesixpack would require '/sbin/ifconfig'. Just trying to head off the reply reporting 'command not found'.
