Sometimes I need external ip address of system I am logged on. The general solution is to use browser and search for “what is my address” . And magically google shows the external ip. But if you have no chance to use browser or especially gui there must be an alternative for this. Here is  a practical solution for this. Using text based browser with simple url gives the correct answer.

Use browser named lynx to get ip address from echo.net

But there is more simple solution where to use only telnet so I do not need to use browser. First we open connection to the ipecho.net with port number 80 and than send http data to the web server.
