Private IP addresses are not routable over the Internet and are meant to work within the local network only. Typically, a private IP address is assigned to each device inside your local network by your Motorola Router Login. This provides a unique IP address for all devices within the local network, such as your phone, laptop, smart TV, printer, media center, etc. Devices on the local network are connecting to the Internet through NAT (network address translation). The following IPv4 address ranges are reserved for the private networks:

You can determine your system private IP address by querying the network stack with commands such as ip, ifconfig or hostname. In Linux, the standard tool for displaying and configuring network interfaces is ip. To display a list of all network interfaces and the associated IP address type the following command:

ip addr
You can also use the following commands to display the private IP address:
hostname -I
ifconfig

A Public IP address is a globally routable IP address that is assigned to a network device, allowing it direct access to the Internet. They are assigned to the device by its ISP, and each device has a unique public IP address. The public IP addresses are used by home routers, web servers, mail servers, and so on. Determining the public IP address involves contacting a remote server over the HTTP/HTTPS or DNS protocol and obtaining the IP address from the remote server response. If you are on a headless Linux server or you want to assign the IP address to a shell script variable you can use command-line tools such as dig , curl and wget.

To get the fluxbox source you can visit the fluxbox home page. Make sure you are downloading the development version. If you are having trouble downloading the stable version, you can visit the troubleshoot page. Many people often want the 'stable' version but the fluxbox development version is very stable and is the only version which is being worked on so finding support for problems you run into with the 'stable' version, such as build problems, will not be supported ('stable' is over 3 years old..). If you do not want to build your version from source you need to download a package for your distro. Take a look at the packages page to find a package for your distro.

The #fluxbox channel on the Freenode network is the official IRC channel for fluxbox.
