Get local IP Address in SuSe

If (like me) you have migrated from Windows to Linux, you may have noticed you no longer have the IPConfig command available to get network card details.

Linux sports an alternative to ipconfig, which is called ifconfig.

You have to run ifconfig as an admin user, so in a terminal window type:

su
– You will be prompted to enter the admin accounts password
ifconfig
– You should now be presented with a list of all the network card configuration details for your PC.
