Oops - ignore that.

Just realized which machine I'm typing on - and it only has a single 
network interface. I'm not sure what this would do if I'd been on the 
machine with two IP addresses - which is why Dar's method is the safer way. 
It should always give (one of) the local address(es) attached to the 
internet, if you are attached. Note this is not the same as - it would give you the external IP of any NAT box on 
the path to the internet, not the local address.
