Login to your server with an SSH client like putty for windows, run the ifconfig command, mark the output with your mouse. Everything marked with the mouse in putty is copied automatically to the windows clipboard an you can paste it to the forum.

Might be a little difficult if the network isn't running...

In that case you have to type everything you see on your Linux system instead of doing copy & paste.
