Hi Mark

That will always return 127.0.0.1 which if entered into the iPhone would make the iPhone want to sync with itself. I need a local network IP.

Cheers

Monte

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?
