const defaultGateway = require('default-gateway');
 
const {gateway, interface} = await defaultGateway.v4();
// gateway = '1.2.3.4', interface = 'en1'
 
const {gateway, interface} = await defaultGateway.v6();
// gateway = '2001:db8::1', interface = 'en2'
 
const {gateway, interface} = defaultGateway.v4.sync();
// gateway = '1.2.3.4', interface = 'en1'
 
const {gateway, interface} = defaultGateway.v6.sync();
// gateway = '2001:db8::1', interface = 'en2'

API

defaultGateway.v4()

defaultGateway.v6()

defaultGateway.v4.sync()

defaultGateway.v6.sync()

Returns: result Object

  • gateway: The IP address of the default gateway.
  • interface: The name of the interface. On Windows, this is the network adapter name.

The .v{4,6}() methods return a Promise while the .v{4,6}.sync() variants will return the result synchronously.

The gateway property will always be defined on success, while interface can be null if it cannot be determined. All methods reject/throw on unexpected conditions.
