How to find out the ipaddress?

Hi Friends,

I am new to UNIX. I wonder how can I get the ipaddress of my machine? In windows, i can use ipconfig to get my ipaddress. I am aware of ifconfig but it does not give the ipaddress.Smilie

Thanks and regards,
Dinesh Venkatesan.

Code:
host `hostname`

or
Code:
nslookup `hostname`

or
Code:
/usr/sbin/ping `hostname`
