In the cuseeme.hlp I read:

>For example, you might decide to use the hostname WillieBob. If your
>IP address was, the entry in your hosts file would look
> WillieBob

But, how do I get my IP addres?
Can I choose any hostname that I want?
The contents of my hosts file is:

# A demo hosts file
# localhost ftp

What do I have to change?
I use Trumpet Winsock, do I have to change anything on the setup?
