Just want to confirm  that using "interface" in the settings array works here.

First i've called a LC Server script on a web server without using interface. The script returns the remote ip.

put tsNetGetSync("https://xxxxxxxx.xx/remoteIP.lc",xHeaders,rOutHeaders,rResult,rBytes)
It returned my public ip of my office.

Then i called the same script, but used interface and set it with my remote VPN ip address

put "" into tSettings["interface"]
put  tsNetGetSync("https://xxxxxxxx.xx/remoteIP.lc",xHeaders,rOutHeaders,rResult,rBytes,tSettings) 

The script now returned the public internet ip of the remote office.

Amazing! tsNET is so powerful.
