Sometimes, I need to see the actual IPv4 address of web sites I open in Safari.
Now, there are two terminal commands,
dig, which I could use for that.
But these commands are not always telling my the actual IP address that the Mac apps, such as Safari, use. Examples for when they show a different IP address:
- I've added the address to the Mac's
- The IP address has recently changed and the Mac apps still use the previous one it has cached.
So, is there a tool that tells me the IP address that's currently known to OS X instead of the address the external name server reports?
