How to know the IP address of a Mac when it is in network

My Mac Mini is connected in a network (LAN). As every one knows, each connected machine in a network has a unique IP address.

"Fastest way: Using Spotlight (CMD + Space) type

Network Utility

which will open the OSX Network Utility Window

It will show the IP address(es) for all your adapters on the first pane."

"Use the ""Network Utility"" app found in the Applications -> Utilities subdirectory (or launch it using Spotlight).

Choose the network interface (wired/wireless) on the ""Info"" view and it will show you the IP address and other details of your network connection.

Or

Open the System Preferences app and click on Network. Click on the appropriate connection on the left hand side and it will show you the IP address right under the connection's status."

Typing "IP Address" in spotlight gives you "Network" as an option under "System preferences". Clicking that takes you straight to the appropriate window inside the correct pane in System Preferences. Amazing. Try doing that with the "Find" option in Windows.
