Refresh your IP in Linux

Almost everyone has, at one time or another, needed to refresh their IP address. In operating systems with a nice GUI this is usually the simple work of clicking a button. It turns out to be not much harder in Linux server environments devoid of a GUI. Run these commands:
sudo dhclient -r
sudo dhclient
The first command will release the current IP address. The second command will fetch the new IP address from the DHCP server.

Nice and easy.
