Answer

I think this will be helpful to get local network information in your case this might be os dependent.

import netifaces
netifaces.interfaces()

#>>[‘lo0’, ‘gif0’, ‘stf0’, ‘en0’, ‘en1’, ‘fw0’]

netifaces.ifaddresses(‘lo0’)

#>>{18: [{‘addr’: ”}], 2: [{‘peer’: ‘127.0.0.1’, ‘netmask’: ‘255.0.0.0’, ‘addr’: ‘127.0.0.1’}], 30: [{‘peer’: ‘::1’, ‘netmask’: ‘ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff’, ‘addr’: ‘::1’}, {‘peer’: ”, ‘netmask’: ‘ffff:ffff:ffff:ffff::’, ‘addr’: ‘fe80::1%lo0’}]}=[‘lo0’, ‘gif0’, ‘stf0’, ‘en0’, ‘en1’, ‘fw0’]
