View Full Version : Dropbear and Finding Your Ip Address
07-13-2007, 07:12 PM
How do I find my device's IP address so that once I install dropbear, I can SSH in? I've searched all over, and it's killing me. I can't figure it out.

BUMP... i tried Netstat from windows but couldnt find my N770
I went to myipaddress.com from the N770 and it gave me the same IP address as my PC

Take a look at the little desktop applet "iphome", found at
I installed the 0.4-1 version on my N800 and when activated by a checkbox in "select applets", it shows my assigned ip along with some statistics.

There are serveral ways to get your ip addres.
1.) goto Tools --> Connection Manager.
From the appMenu, select "Internet Connection", then IPAddress
2.) Another App, called "WiFiInfo" is here:
3.) Another option is the IPHome applet from here:
4.) or you can make your own, with this simple python script (requires Python runtime)
-------------[ ipaddr.py ]-------------------------
window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
textview = gtk.TextView()
textbuffer = textview.get_buffer()
ip = commands.getoutput("/sbin/ifconfig")
sw = gtk.ScrolledWindow()

Or the standard *nix way:
From an xterm, type: /sbin/ifconfig
I was going to make some snide remark about the .py method, but I see that it's using /sbin/ifconfig too. :D

I also prefer ifconfig
but this system monitor applet is decent
(does clutter up the top toolbar-dealie a bit tho)
