In the cuseeme.hlp I read:

>For example, you might decide to use the hostname WillieBob. If your

>like:

> 128.32.64.88 WillieBob

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

<BOF>
#
# A demo hosts file
#
127.0.0.1 localhost

203.5.119.1 ftp.trumpet.com.au ftp
<EOF>

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