Internet - How do I find my external (public) IP address?
Last Updated 2 years ago

To discover what your external/pubic IP address (the one used by your router, for example) go to https://www.ipchicken.com and your IP address will be displayed in the information presented on the landing page.

To discover your public IP using a command line, open a command prompt and use:

nslookup myip.opendns.com. resolver1.opendns.com

This uses resolver1.opendns.com DNS server to resolve the magical myip.opendns.com. hostname to your ip address.

(Note: the trailing . on the myip.opendns.com. lookup prevents search domains from being appended, which can yield incorrect results.)
