How do I find my IP address??
I am new to the forum and as you can probably tell I am very new to Linux...I am using RedHat 9 by the way.

What run command do you have to type to see your IP Address?? I thought it was "ifconfig" but that didn't do it.

Thanks for all the help...I'm sure I will have many more questions in the future.

I thought it was "ifconfig" but that didn't do it.
In ur first post where u tried above command.

Which distro r u using ?

Find some where in the applications, u will find terminal or konsole.

And I think u need to read some docs.

Use one of the console programs, such as Konsole.

Also, the website below will tell you what your IP address is:

The problem would be if he's behind a router, it won't get his internal IPs. But good source for finding the external IP.
