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
www.whatismyip.com - it would give you the external IP of any NAT box on
the path to the internet, not the local address.
