One way to find it out is to execute command:
# wget checkip.dyndns.org -O gatewayip.txt && cat gatewayip.txt

You should see answer: <html><head><title>Current IP Check</title></head><body>Current IP Address: XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX</body></html>

This will work 99.9% of the cases. In the remaining 0.1% you have been proxied and http requests are routed to go out from different gateway than non http traffic. :)

Use the following steps to find your gateway ip address :

  1. Click Applications > System Tools > Terminal.

  2. When terminal is open, type the following command: ip route | grep default

It shows your gateway ip address of Mobileid server or any device .

If you want to know your internal ip address use the command : ifconfig/all To know your external ip address use the site ip-details .com
