Java program to find IP address of your computer
An IP(Internet Protocol) address is an identifier assigned to each computer and another device (e.g., router, mobile, etc) connected to a TCP/IP network that is used to locate and identify the node in communication with other nodes on the network. IP addresses are usually written and displayed in human-readable notation such as 192.168.1.35 in IPv4(32-bit IP address).
An IP address serves two principal functions: host or network interface identification and local addressing. Its role has been characterized as follows: “A name indicates what we seek. An address indicates where it is. A route indicates how to get there.”
To find public IP, we use http://bot.whatismyipaddress.com (An online utility to find your public IP), we open the URL, read a line and print the line.
Below is the Java implementation of the above steps.
System IP Address : 10.0.8.204 Public IP Address : 188.8.131.52
