Unfortunately not because that will return a public IP. Nothing on the WAN should be able to determine the LAN IP.

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?
