Hi Monte,

Does

 hostnametoaddress("localhost")

work for you?

> To determine the domain name of the computer Rev is running on we use hostName() and to turn that into an IP we use hostNameToAddress(hostName()). If you are behind a router this will return your LAN IP however if your computer is using a modem it will return a public IP. I need a reliable LAN IP so I can ask the user to enter it into their iPhone to connect to my sync server. Should I just be parsing ifconfig and ipconfig and forget about hostName() or what?
