"IP" stands for Internet Protocol. Sometimes you need your iPad or iPhone's IP address when it is jailbroken and running OpenSSH. Your device needs to be connected to a Wi-Fi network for it to be assigned an IP address.
Here's how to locate your iOS device's IP Address:
1. Navigate to Settings -> Wi-Fi to find the Network your iPad is connected to. Your Network will appear in blue and have a check mark next to it.
2. Click the blue circle with arrow inside located in the same panel as your Network. This will give you a list of more information about your Wi-Fi Network.
3. Your IP address will be listed under the "Forget this Network" button next to "IP Address."
