Likely, I don't know the correct cross-platform *nix way of doing it. I only
saw source from a STUN server on vovida.org which does SIOCGIFCONF - but I
don't know if that is proper way of doing it. Basically, it must return all
local IPs on the box, if getifaddrs on *nix does that - then it will work.

I would do so if I know what I were doing when it came to doing it the right
cross-platform-*nix way. I'd more likely introduce more issues than solve,
or introduce some kind of compilation issue on various *nix platforms. My
background is from windows, so I'm not sure the correct way of doing it on

I can only imagine how tricky this is... However, the current way is
definitely broken too - I guess it's the lesser of the two broken evils...
Our application is basically useless on WINE without Jerry's fix.
