|If you're trying to figure out what IP your system uses for outbound connections, you can use wget to call this page:|
wget --tries=1 -qO - http://myip.directadmin.comwhich should display the IP that connected to it.
If you want to test which IP connects out, when you bind to different local IPs, use the --bind-address option for your local IP , eg:
wget --bind-address=126.96.36.199 --tries=1 -qO - http://myip.directadmin.comwhere you'd replace 188.8.131.52 with the local IP to bind to (useful for LANs or if you're on a VPS where out connections are routed through a higher power (like a router or master OS)
To check the IP on SSL connections (in case port 443 is being routed differently), test like this:
wget --no-check-certificate --tries=1 -qO - https://myip.directadmin.com
