 Hello again! I'm still working on that  instant messenger (for science fair), and I have been reading about  networking in some Java tutorials. In one part of it, it said to have a  connection with another computer, you need to know the IP name of the  computer you want to connect with. I don't know whether or not this is  the same for Python, but could someone please tell me what information  of the computer you want to connect with the you actually need for a  connection? In other words (or plain english), what information do I  need to get a connection with another computer (IP address, name, IP  name)? Also, could you tell me how to find it on a computer? Since I'll  be testing the instant messenger on the three computers in my house, I  just need to know how to find the information on the computer I'd  currently be on (not from any remote location). Thanks!  :)
