getting My IP .. via API?
Posted on: Sep 18, 2015 5:14 AM
using the web console, in security groups, editing rules, adding a new rule, you can select 'My IP' and it gets the correct IP address. is there somewhere in the AWS API to get the IP that is connecting?

Looking at our CLI docs here - http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-ec2-sg.html#configuring-a-security-group
You can get the public IP address of your local computer using a service. For example, we provide the following service: http://checkip.amazonaws.com/. To locate another service that provides your IP address, use the search phrase 'what is my IP address'. If you are connecting through an ISP or from behind your firewall without a static IP address, you need to find out the range of IP addresses used by client computers.
So from the CLI you could run a simple curl of the url to return the IP.
Ex. $ curl http://checkip.amazonaws.com/
I hope the above info is helpful!

AWS Free Tier What is the maximum size IP address range that you can have in an Amazon VPC?, Currently, Amazon VPC supports five (5) IP address ranges, one (1) primary and four (4) secondary for IPv4. With AWS, One can harden their instances in 3 ways. It can be OS level firewall, Security group (SGs) and Network Access Control Lists (NACLs). Both security groups and NACLs work together hand in hand and helps to build a layered network defense.

I found unknown IP addresses in my Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) flow logs or firewall logs. The unknown IP addresses aren't assigned to an instance. How can I find the resource that owns these unknown IP addresses in my Amazon VPC?


Halfords car battery. Note: If you receive errors when running AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI) commands, make sure that you’re using the most recent AWS CLI version.

Several resources can create elastic network interfaces in your Amazon VPC. To find the network interface that owns an IP address:

  1. Open the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) console.
  2. In the navigation pane, choose Network Interfaces.
  3. Click in the search box, and then choose Private IP.
  4. Enter the IP address that you're looking for in the search box. The network interfaces that meet your search criteria display.
  5. In the bottom pane, read the Description of the network interface to identify that resource that owns it.

Or, you can find the network interface that owns an IP address using the AWS CLI:

Aws public ip address range


Aws Get Ip Address

  • Replace IPv4 address with the IP address that you're investigating.
  • Confirm that you have the correct Region set in the configuration. Otherwise, manually specify the Region with the --region parameter.
