if you're on MacOS X or Unix-like enviroment you can do the arcane 
shell thingie:

put "ifconfig | grep 'inet'" into tShellCommand
replace "'" with quote in tShellCommand
get Shell(tShellCommand)

That will give you a nice string with all your network addresses for 
both ipv4 and ipv6, also will give you some nice info on broadcast and 
netmasks, each line will be an address, like this:

[soapdog:~] andregar% ifconfig | grep "inet"
         inet6 ::1 prefixlen 128
         inet6 fe80::1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
         inet netmask 0xff000000
         inet6 fe80::203:93ff:fe6d:12e prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
         inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
         inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
[soapdog:~] andregar%

See, I tested on terminal, so don't mind the prompt. the first and 
second lines are related to that Rendevouz thing (I think), the third 
is the localhost, the fourth is the localhost too but in ipv6, the 
fifith is THE IP FROM THE ISP, and the last is my local network IP for 
I have a home network here, just parse it and you have all address you 
possibly want!

Hope I helped...
