Hmm, so could the reason that the client request is shown to be coming 
from the same IP address as the server machine be that they are on the 
same home network?

I guess to truly test my question, I need to have two computers that are 
completely "unrelated" to one another -- meaning they are in no way 
connected via any type of network prior to running these scripts.
