Initial Code
#1. Use ifconfig and pipe ( | ) it into grep which will search for the 'inet' field
#2. Pipe the data once again into grep and reverse the logic of the search (-v) to remove  Using -v will match all the lines that do not match (aka loopback)
#3. Use Cut to show the second field in the line, using spaces as a delimiter

ifconfig | grep 'inet ' | grep -v | cut -d\   -f2
