How do I find the IPv4 address of a Minecraft server (e.g
I need to do this because I am testing something for my own server.
Simple! Just open up a command line/terminal window (doesn't matter what operating system) and type:
ping <your server address here>
That should work!
Another alternative is to use
nslookup which queries the name directly from DNS:
C:\> nslookup google.com Server: UnKnown Address: 2601:647:4a03:6e2b:9610:3eff:fe0e:6c13 Non-authoritative answer: Name: google.com Addresses: 2607:f8b0:4005:801::200e 22.214.171.124
This shows the IPV6 address followed by the IPV4.
ping -c 3 "server-address"
on unix and unix-like systems(ctrl+t on most systems, and search for it in spotlight on a mac). and
ping -n 3 "server-address"
on windows in the command line(press windows key+r and type cmd, then type the command,
ping -n 3 server-address)
