    It depends on what ip address you're looking for exactly, there's an ipv4 address which is your local ip address and there is an external ip address which is what you give to players to connect to your server.

    Edit: for you to connect to your server, you can use direct connect and type in 'localhost' (on the same computer you're hosting on, or you can go to add server and type in 'localhost' for the ip address box.

    It's fairly simple to find your server's ip.

    If you have a homemade server (a server hosted at home):

    1) Press the start key on your keyboard (default location is between 'ctrl' and 'alt' keys and has a windows logo)
    2) Type in 'cmd' exactly then press the Enter or Return key on your keyboard.
    3) A black window should appear, this is the command prompt, in the command prompt, type in 'ipconfig'
    4) The Windows IP Configuration should appear, if you are using a wireless adapter (like this) look for the wireless adapter heading, if you're using an ethernet cable to connect directly to your router, look for "Ethernet adapter Ethernet", once you've found that, you should see something like:

    Ethernet adapter Ethernet:
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . :
    Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . . . . : fe80:2041:205812:1204
    IPv4 Address . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.x.x < this is your IPv4 address!
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . .: 25525525252521512
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . . . . . : 192,aomsdfom

    or something similar.

    For your external ip address, just Google 'what's my ip'
    or you can use this website.

    On the Mac OS, its almost the same
    Click on the Magnifying glass on the task bar (gray bar on the top), type in 'terminal'
    a similar box like the windows command prompt should appear (a black box or similar),
    type in 'ifconfig' and there you should have your ipv4 address.

    For your external ip, its the same with the windows method, just Google your ip (type in what's my ip in google) or you can use this website.

    (I haven't tested this but this information should be correct for the Mac OS)
