The worker's IP address might be needed in several cases: to connect to the worker remotely, to connect to the worker in local-area network via SSH, to use remote console, to authorize on an anonymous pool, etc.
This address is primarily used on pools that don't require IPv6 authorization but need IPv4 address, separated by dots, for example,
If you want to get your IPv4 address from the msOS remote console or directly from rig, you can use command
curl -kLs "https://api.ipify.org"
This address is primarily used to connect to your worker without going through minerstat dashboard on local network, or to adjust network settings, etc.

Some pools allow connecting via IPv6 and request your IPv6 address in order to authorize. The IPv6 address is longer and is separated by
: instead of
. symbols. If your network is IPv6-only, minerstat should already show the IPv6 address as mentioned above.
However, in some cases dashboard shows you the IPv4 address while the pool requires an IPv6 one instead so a different approach is required to find it out.
On windows rig: visit api6.ipify.org from the web browser and copy the response.
On msos rig: use command
curl -kLs "https://api6.ipify.org" and copy the response.
If your pool doesn't accept your IP, you will need to step in touch with their customer support so they can confirm it for you manually.
