Hey there,

I think you're asking how to find your IP address (Basic Service Set Identifier), but I'm sorry if I'm wrong here

The main commands that I use are 'ifconfig' and 'ip':

# ifconfig | grep 'inet addr:'
          inet addr:X.X.X.X  Bcast:X.X.X.X  Mask:
          inet addr:X.X.X.X  Bcast:X.X.X.X  Mask:
          inet addr:  Mask:

# ip addr show 
1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 16436 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN 
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
    inet scope host lo
    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether *YOUR MAC ADDR IS HERE* brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet *IP ADDRESS IS HERE* brd x.x.x.x scope global eth0
    inet6 *IPv6 IS HERE* scope global 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 xxxx::xxxx:xxxx:xxxx:xxxx scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
3: eth1: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UP qlen 1000
    link/ether *MAC ADDR* brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet *IP ADDR* brd scope global eth1
    inet6 *IPv6 ADDR* scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
