To get the IP address of a server, you must install the curl and jq commands to process JSON data, which are geo-location APIs:

For Ubuntu/Debian:

sudo apt install curl jq   

For CentOS/RHEL:

sudo yum install curl jq    

For Fedora:

sudo dnf install curl jq

For openSUSE:

sudo zypper install curl jq

To get the public IP address of the servers, use the following curl command to create an API request to ipinfo.io in your terminal:

curl https://ipinfo.io/ip
