ipz

a simple application that shows your ip address and hostname

A very simple service that shows your public ip address. You can test it on heroku.

Ipz can also return your ip and hostname (if applicable) in JSON format.

Using CURL:

$ curl -X GET -H "Accept: application/json" http://ipz.herokuapp.com/

will respond with:

{"ip": "your ip here"}

or:

{
    "ip": "79.167.55.15",
    "hostname": "foo"
}

Sample configuration using nginx. It assumes that the application listens on port 8080.

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name ip.example.com;

    location / {
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_set_header X-NginX-Proxy true;
        proxy_pass http://127.0.0.1:8080;
        proxy_redirect off;
    }
}
