Finding Public IP from Aerohive Command Line

How to get Public IP from Aerohive Command Line

There are many sites that are web based and you can simply ask someone to go to one of these websites and grab the public IP address such as or etc. Hover if you have a need to accomplish the same via command line there is hope. It is pretty easy to do it if you are running Cisco switches or Linux server/device. For Aerohive switches I had to play around with different options to see which will work if I want to find out the public IP of a site from Aerohive Switch or Command line. Running the following command did the trick.

exec http url
exec http url

See the response below that shows the Public IP address:

switch#exec http url

You can host your own service and also don’t abuse the service if you are not hosting your own because you won’t get any results and/or might get blocked.
