If you have a browser on Linux, you can just go to http://whatismyipaddress.com/ on the internet.  Otherwise, you may only see an internal LAN IP address and not your public IP address.

Another site to get your external IP is grc.com.  Scroll down to ShieldsUp and this test will show you the IP and DNS name.

You need to install lynx... sudo yum install lynx (or apt-get, or whatever your distribution is)... then run it like...

lynx --dump http://ipecho.net/plain
