dig +short ANY
(You need ANY to get either A/IPv4 or AAAA/IPv6 as appropriate. Luckily OpenDNS doesn't implement RFC 8482 yet.)

@voidptr @climagic
nice... but if I dig it through my ISPs resolver or through, it says NXDOMAIN. Is it filtered or sth?

@Wolf480pl If you dig through your ISP's resolver, OpenDNS can't determine your IP (since you don't have a direct connection with them). They've probably implemented blocking of some sort to avoid confusing people in that case.

@voidptr yeah, thought about that right after my previous post.

@climagic I use a tiny thing in my nginx config to make my own ip lookup:

location /ip {
default_type text/plain;
return 200 $remote_addr;

Looks like this in practice:

@climagic #identME checks all four, and also proposes different API calls :

works pretty well !
