ipz

Ipz

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.

Response

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"
}

Nginx

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;
