ifconfig command not showing inet address
 
HI All,
I am new to linux. I am using Oracle Enterprise linux 5.5. In order to get the IP Address I am using command /sbin/ifconfig but i am not getting the expected output.
Mainly I am not getting the inet address in the output. The output which I am getting is posted below:



[oracle@oel ~]$ /sbin/ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0C:29:F4:40:94
inet6 addr: fe80::20c:29ff:fef4:4094/64 Scope:Link

I am not sure what am I doing wrong. I am stuck just because I am not able to see the ip address of the machine.Can anyone please help me with this.

Regards,
Vikas
