I am developing a galaxy tool which would need the ip address of the running Galaxy as its parameter. Is that anyway I can get the ip address and feed that to my tool?

I tried to do that in the command section, but protocol is not exist and ip address is 127.0.1.1. My Galaxy is running on http://192.168.56.11:8080/

    #import socket
    #set hostname = socket.gethostname()
    #set ip = socket.gethostbyname(hostname)
    #set protocol = socket.getprotobyname(hostname)
    #set $host = str(protocol) + str(ip)

Thank you in advance!

If you are trying to do this in a tool, you may want to look at the baseurl parameter type. Example:

<param name="GALAXY_URL" type="baseurl" value="/tool_runner" />

There might be a way how to do this - probably finding some kind of service that reflects back your IP address but generally Galaxy has no way of knowing its own outside IP address because that depends on the network's topology. The 192.168.56.11:8080 is your local network IP address, if your Galaxy was reachable from the Internet it would have had a different one.

What is that you want to achieve?

Hi Martin,

Thank you for the reply. I think right now I only want to get the local network IP address. I have everything installed in a VM. Now I have a Galaxy instance running on http:192.168.56.11:8080 and a JBrowse instance running on http://192.168.56.11:80. My Galaxy tool wants to get the ip of Galaxy, so that it can get the ip of JBrowse by changing the port number. I don't want to hard code the ip address in the Galaxy tool, as you said the ip will change.

We can defined the hostname and port of Galaxy in galaxy.init. Is there any way I can get that information for the tool?

Thank you!
