Cannot retrive ip address and additional ips of my vps?

rEDrED Member

Hi,

So I bought a linux vps from fiverr but after loggin in I ran "ipconfig" and "ip addr" to see the additional ip's but I am unable to see the additional ips and even the main ip isn't correct. This is what is shown as my main ip:

inet addr:10.0.4.4

What is happening?

Did I get a compromised server?

    A VPS from someone on fiverr? That's new, and sounds risky.

    Because I bought some service from him(non vps related) and instead of giving me refund he gave me a vps.

    How you are accessing it, some public IP ?

    Do a traceroute and see if he's self hosting

    I am able to login via ip but that same ip isn't visible when I run ifconfig.

    Probably because it is behind NAT or something, seems very sketch

    Reminds me of that provider that sold one IPv4 multiple times.
    Was amazing to watch.

    It doesn't seem all that sketch, it's not unusual for a VPS or Cloud provider to give a private address on the guest and map it to a dedicated public address in the host system or external load balancer.

    The key question for the OP is who owns/runs the public IP.

    All things being kosher you would just bind public facing services to the main interface (10.0.4.4) in this case and they will be magically accessible via the IP you use to SSH.
