I realize my question is off-topic for the list in general, but this
thread on X servers suggests that I'm more likely to find help here
than anywhere else.

I can compile X clients with gcc, run them locally with MicroImages's
X server. But I am unable to figure out what my dynamically assigned
IP is, so that I can set DISPLAY on the remote system.

Does anybody know of a way to do that. (I'm also running Win95.)

Thanks in advance.
