TIL linux ip has colours!1!!!1 (please don't hack me)


@devnull @calebccff that's which is a private IP (probably from a NAT router) so that wouldn't work. Fwiw, I don't think there's a public IP in that output except the ipv6 one but I doubt you have much software running on your computer that is bound to ipv6 addresses.

@splatt9990 Yes, I know… It was just a (bad) joke, to answer to the "please don't hack me" part…


@splatt9990 @devnull @calebccff The v6 IPs are local-link on this screenshot, so there is no public IP at all…
