Get your local IP in macOS

Use ifconfig (equivalent to ipconfig in Windows) to get your Mac's interface configuration.

Normally, local IPs have a 192.168.X.X pattern, so you can combine ifconfig and grep to filter strings starting with 192.


ifconfig | grep 192

The vertical bar (|) is a pipe. It takes the output from the first command as the input from the second one.
