<a class="clsStd" href="/techref/objectmodel/objects/user/index.htm">User</a>.LocalIP Property (Restricted)
Requires EnableIP permission. Contains a string object with the IP address of the local computer, as it appears to the computer. This is significant because of the way the network can change the address as the network traffic goes through firewalls. This property is read-only, and applies to the local computer only.
Returns a string with the IP address of the local computer, as it appears to the user.
To print the local IP address in the body of the document, use document.write to output Users.Me.LocalIP, as shown in the following script example:
Use of this property is restricted by the EnableIP flag. An application that does not possess this flag is not able to read this information from MSN® Messenger. No exception is thrown, and a blank value is returned.
Reading the LocalIP property of the remote user returns a blank value.
