What do you mean by "real"?
There should not be any direct way to discover the host (the main linux
distro, which has access to all the vservers and can administer them)
from inside a guest (one of the vservers); if you want to know the guest
IP, use "ip addr show" (ifconfig will not work as expected, it's
You can get the system hostname using "hostname"; the network hostname
is the same as far as I know) can also be displayed using "uname -n".
If you are interested in the hostname associated with that IP (which is
important to network services), use "host <ip address>" if you have the
DNS tools installed (which should be the case in most distributions).
Hope that helps,
