where is our IP?



I have a client that is asking for our IP and wants to clear our IP address through their security, so they can send us a link to stream. Where do I find our IP?

  • What are you exposing to your customer, is an api or something else?

First, you need to know if you have a static IP or a dynamic IP from your ISP. If you have dynamic, it will change. Static won't. Here's a website from Amazon that will tell you your current public IP address.

  • This seems to provide the current IP of the machine you open this IP in.


To stream data into AWS, you need to have the IP address of the target AWS resource. Here's a general overview of the steps to obtain the IP address:

  • Identify the AWS resource that you want to stream data into, such as an Amazon S3 bucket or Amazon Kinesis stream.
  • Determine the endpoint for the AWS resource. An endpoint is a URL that represents the entry point for accessing a specific AWS resource. For example, the endpoint for an S3 bucket might look like s3.us-west-2.amazonaws.com (Reference) and Kinesis endpoint might look like kinesis.us-west-1.amazonaws.com (Reference).
  • Obtain the IP address for the endpoint. You can do this by using the command line utility nslookup and specifying the endpoint as the argument:
nslookup <endpoint>

The output of the nslookup command will include the IP address for the endpoint. Here is an exampe output:


Non-authoritative answer:
Name:	kinesis.us-west-1.amazonaws.com

Use the IP address to stream data into the AWS resource. The specific method for streaming data will depend on the AWS resource you're targeting and the programming language or tool you're using to stream the data. Keep in mind that AWS resources may have multiple IP addresses, and the IP addresses can change over time, so it's important to dynamically obtain the IP address when you stream data into AWS.
