Python – Finding local IP addresses using Python’s stdlib

ip addressnetworkingpython

How can I find local IP addresses (i.e. 192.168.x.x or 10.0.x.x) in Python platform independently and using only the standard library?

I just found this but it seems a bit hackish, however they say tried it on *nix and I did on windows and it worked.

import socket
s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
s.connect(("", 80))

This assumes you have an internet access, and that there is no local proxy.
